Search Engine Journal reports that
Searchboth.com, a search engine that previously displayed search results for both Google and Yahoo search side by side on a split screen has expanded its reach and now includes an option to display search results from other search engines. Users of the site now have the option to choose results from other search engines which includes, Ask.com, MSN, Dogpile, Metacrawler, Altavista, Looksmart and Websearch.Aside from these major search engines, Searchboth.com also now includes the facility to display search results from two travel sites from several travel sites included in the Searchboth.com index. These travel sites include Hotels.com, Expedia, Travelocity , HotWire, CheapTickets, SideStep, Kayak among other travel sites. For online directory listings, searchboth.com has included AT&T’s Yellow.com and Verizon’s Superpages.com.
I did not know anything about searchboth.com until I read about it from Search Engine Journal. When it comes to search, Google seems to be country miles ahead of other search engines. Just like many people, I am addicted to them. But of late, I am having an impression that Yahoo search is no slouch at all. This started when Google search failed to give me good results on a certain item. Out of frustration, I resorted to searching on Yahoo using the same key words as I did on Google. I got a shock of my life when I saw the stuff that I needed popping up on the first page. Meanwhile, I regularly toggle between the two search engines. The searchboth revelation will help me to quit toggling 🙂
Finally, I would like to advise searchboth.com to change their name to searchallover.com now that they are displaying search results from all over.
