A metasearch engine is an internet search site that doesn't use a local database; it operates entirely by querying other search engines and internet directories. This means that duplicates will often come up, but any metasearch engine worth its weight in gold would remove these.

In using a metasearch engine, it makes the chance of finding obscure pieces of information greater, though each individual search may take longer.
