What is a Meta Search Engine?
This means that instead of getting results from one search engine, you see the best results from a variety of engines.
The metasearch engine sends out simultaneous searches across a range of search engines and combines them all into one place for you. This means you get better coverage, and it can be good for a quick overview; however, they can prioritise sponsored web pages. They are best for quick, straightforward searches where you need fast, broad coverage.
