Google sells their data to many other engines, who brand the results on their site.

Yahoo used to use google data as far as I recall, untill recently, when google announced their public offering.

Many engines realized it is better for their image to have relevant results other than using their minimal database. Many engines are technically 'resellers' of google data.

Why do I use google? Because not only is it a good search engine but there is a built in google search field on the Mozilla Firefox browser that I use, I don't even need to go to the google site to search with it.

I used to use metacrawler which searches multiple engines, but I began noticing that the best results were coming from Google. Why should I bother with a middle-man? Now I Google first and maybe use something else to double check the results. Excite was OK but I got tired of the same junk robertfenix mentioned. Plus, when Spybot names a site specifically (Excite) as a "known threat" something must be amiss!


I used to use Metacrawler all the time but switched to google as well, I don't think I've really used another site other than google in quite sometime unless I'm using a specific search engine for specific topics.

Blood sweat & tears, probubly.

Kinda like king of the hill, fight your way up, then fight down all those that want to bump you.

I used to use metasearches but now I just use Google and only use another engine if Google doesn't return what I want (which is bloody rare).
