    Hi folks,

    I want to let my users search on different search engines simultaniously. Therefore I need a meta search engine but ... how to create one? I'm thankful for every single little script snippet. Of course, I'll mention, credit and thank those of you in the imprints of my website, who helped to build it.

    Dogpile is a meta search engine. It's using Google, Yahoo, Bing and ask.
    You can get a search box to place on your website here.

    This is your best bet as building a script and using it without pre approval from the search engines can be very bad and cost you lots.

    When you pull there results to display they dont get to advertise and they dont like that.
    If you still want one here are several scripts that will do it some free some not
    The CGI Resource Index: Programs and Scripts: Perl: Searching: Remote Searches

    So, the best thing to do would be using Google AdSense together with Google Custom Search, right? But what about the Yahoo! Search Boss system? Is there any way to use it in a similar way as Google AdSense + Custom Search?
