Doodle : desktop search engine for Linux

I was doing some research on Desktop Search engine and came across Doodle ( which is not include. Maybe a suggestion to include this ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 15:53, 18 March 2007 (UTC).

If it has a Wikipedia page, it can be included. However, as I see it does not, it would need one of those first before it could safely be put into the list. g026r 16:39, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

In order to keep this list under some semblance of control, I've been removing redirects from the list. For example, Google Blog Search does not have its own article, so it's not on the list. However, several redirects I recently removed were quickly re-added without comment. It would be nice if we could reach consensus on this issue. Does anybody else have thoughts on the subject? - EurekaLott 06:48, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Can you make a list of the Wikipedia redirects currently in the list? If this is to be the new policy, we'd all have to understand it. Also is the number of redirects expanding over time? I suppose you could just click on every entry in the list and see if a redirect occurs. In a few cases the product's name has changed but our article has kept the old name. E.g. Yahooligans should be renamed to Yahoo! Kids; we should not count that as a redirect. If you disallow redirects, you would be saying that there needs to be a complete free-standing Wikipedia article for every search engine that we include in the list. I can see the argument for that, but I'd like to know how much the list would change under that rule. EdJohnston 15:43, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
Here are the redirects, minus those with simple capitalization changes, like WestLaw to Westlaw or .com versions of the name, like to CareerBuilder. Most of them can be fixed by simply pointing to the new name.
I'm not looking to get rid of redirects because they're redirects. I merely hope to avoid having multiple links to the same page under different names. For example, look at all the redirects that point to the List of Google products. We certainly don't want all of those cluttering up the list. Perhaps we shouldn't worry about redirects and simply say no duplicates. - EurekaLott 02:09, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Mindbreeze Enterprise Search / Mindbreeze Desktop Search

Could someone add those two search engines? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 20:21, August 22, 2007 (UTC)

Per the local convention, it can't be added here unless there is a Mindbreeze article. EdJohnston 20:34, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Wikia Search

Do you think it's legitimate that Wikia Search has a link on the Open Source Search Engines section? It's a development project without any actual search engine. I understand that Jimmy is the founder of Wikia and all but I don't think we'd do the same for competitors like Powerset. Edits involving powerset seem to get quickly reverted (and rightfully so because the public hasn't actually seen the product yet!). --Searchmaven 18:55, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Your objection is valid. I think Search Wikia only deserves mention here because there is genuine buzz about it. I would listen to the views of other editors who think it doesn't belong here. EdJohnston 19:00, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


This is such a partial list because times have moved on since it was started that it really has no encyclopedic value and should be merged into search engine. Examples of missing entries are whois entries (domain name search), wikipedia search and hundreds more. This article was valid a few years but is now not. What do others think. Thanks, SqueakBox 19:35, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

No. Mainly because this is NOT a list of search engines. It includes various websites/portals many of which use the same search engine to do the actual indexing and searching. For a programmer looking for a search engine to incorporate on a website or to integrate into an enterprise search application etc this list is useless. On the other hand a list of search engines would be useful on that page Ray3055 (talk) 18:19, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Page description

I am adding this to the top of the article to relace the "this is a list of search engines"

I think this more accurately describes the current state of this page, but feel free to edit/add to cover anything I missed. I note that the need for a definition has been raised before, and also note that the list is specifically for items that have a Wikipedia entry rather than be a true list of available search engines. As a programmer maybe I am biased but this is the definition that I understand to be true:

  • Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (5th ed) - Computing: A program which searches for and identifies specified items in a database or network, esp. the Internet.

Note that it refers to a PROGRAM not an application that uses a search engine. It seems to me the loose usage here of 'engine' is similar to the widespread use of the word 'database' to mean a DBMS (like SQL server). I would like to see a 'list of search engines'(as defined by the OED) but then this list will need to be split up into more specific lists. Ray3055 (talk) 13:30, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Where's Magellan?

Magellan was one of the earliest. Where is it? --Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 20:52, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Magellan and many other search engines, both current and historic (Strix, Muscat etc) are missing because nobody has yet written a Wikipedia article for them. Unfortunately red links get wiped out on this page, so you would need to start an article to get it on this list. My interest is also early search engines and I have started the MEDLARS page. Ray3055 (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 09:51, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Seems I was wrong. I found the article under Lotus Magellan, I have now added it to the defunct engine section. Ray3055 (talk) 10:49, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I could be mistaken, but that looks like a different Magellan. - Eureka Lott 15:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
You are correct. See seems Magellan (web search engine) was taken over by Excite and finally 'died' in 2001. Lotus Magellan was a file search program.Ray3055 (talk) 15:47, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Contents list

Seems to me the contents list could do with putting in alphabetical order and also having sub-categories. Any objections to major categories WWW and non-Web/other for example and then putting all the vertical search and 'general search engines' under WWW; and Open source, Enterprise Search and Desktop search etc under non-Web/other? These are just initial thoughts - other suggestions welcome. Seems also that the Vendor list (or simplified version) on Enterprise search could be moved to here also, so that article can be expanded properly and not be just a list.Ray3055 (talk) 11:15, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

The article has been heavily edited over time. You'd need to convince people that your new category system was better. If you wish to alphabetize within the existing sections, I doubt that anyone would object. I see that you have already brought some material over here from Enterprise search. Since what you are adding seems to have a different format than what's already here (you have multiple lines for a given company) it seems possible that other companies already here may start trying to expand their entries as well. This would not necessarily be a good thing. If a company has more than one search offering, why can't that be handled within our existing article about that company? EdJohnston (talk) 13:43, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I reformatted the Enterprise Search to give one line per company, there is a problem though that Hummingbird for example is a subsidiary of OpenText although I have put it on the same line - some may prefer it to be given a line of its own. A more worrying problem of this list which is 'growing like Topsy' is that currently it has sections for "Google based search engines" and "Yahoo based search engines", which could lead other search engine software companies (Autonomy, Endeca etc) to start adding all the websites of companies with Wikipedia articles that have their search engine to provide results, for example United States Environmental Protection Agency uses the Northern Light search engine to provide results and there are dozens of similar examples. Ray3055 (talk) 00:26, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
It sounds you have looked into this issue a fair amount. If you have a reform plan to offer, please give us a sketch of how you would rearrange things so people are not too shocked. EdJohnston (talk) 05:10, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
I moved over the Search Appliances section from the Enterprise Search page and added it as a sub-section of Enterprise search so that it appears as a sub-category of Enterprise search in the Contents list, hope that's Ok with all; there is just an article for Google at the moment although there are others on the market; if I get time I'll start an article for Thunderstone's search appliance also, but at the moment I have commented it out to avoid a redlink.Ray3055 (talk) 20:20, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
In your view, a search appliance is a piece of software sold together with a dedicated computer? We should be prepared to see lots of others try to get into this category, if it's kept as a category. An alternative might be to keep the Google Search Appliance somewhere in the articles that talk about Google. I wonder if there is actually some material on the web about search appliances as a topic. It is tempting to think of it as a cute packaging idea from Google, though others may have more specific knowledge. EdJohnston (talk) 02:39, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Actually Ed I am not so sure that the List of Google products#Hardware products link I used would count as a Wikipedia article - the whole page looks to me like a link-farm to various Google sites - what do you think? I found a page Search appliance but this just talks about Google Search Appliances in a very vague way and ignores others and is far from a proper description of what an Appliance or indeed a Search Appliance is, seems more like yet another Google advert Ray3055 (talk) 15:22, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Since you're one of the people who is trying to organize the material, perhaps you can advise on whether we need any new full-text articles. I personally don't think we cover search-engine technology very well. My own work on this list is mostly to keep out spam. EdJohnston (talk)

I have added some 7-10 new search engine names under medical search engines.

suggestion for updation of medical search engine list

Per WP:EL and how this page is intended, there should only links to actual pages (i.e., no "red-links"). Also, I think there should only be links to pages about search engines, not things of same name or a general company or site that happens to have some sort of search capability unless that specific search is highlighted in the WP page. DMacks (talk) 07:03, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

A search engine is not a website or database

Seriously some of the things that people think are search engines are ridiculous. For example, the specialist 'search engines' that are listed. I use some of them all the time, but they are not search engines. They USE a search engine, but they themselves are NOT search engines.

Maybe this analogy will help people to understand...

The Honda V-Tec 2.2 engine is used in several models of Honda motor vehicles (e.g. Prelude, Integra, Accord). Each of these models of cars are different from each other, but what drives them is not the 'Prelude' engine, or the 'Integra' engine. No what drives them is the Honda V-Tec engine.

Websites are the same. They might store different information but their search functions are driven by a search engine. This might have been especially developed for the website, but the much more likely scenario is that the website owner purchased and adapted a commercial website engine. This might be Google's service, or it might be the purchase of a product like the Zoom Search Engine (Wrensoft) that is then implemented and adapted to their website.

So lets re-examine all these supposed search engines listed here and identify those that are truly a 'search engine' as opposed to those that use a search engine.

Cheers, Sim —Preceding unsigned comment added by SimParadox (talkcontribs) 03:14, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Edit: P.S. An example of what I am talking about is seen in the first post in this discussion. The author even states that it is a google-based search engine. Please see the difference: The search engine is Google, is a search site not a search engine. Start up a list of 'Search Sites' if you like, but please lets keep 'Search Engines' restricted to only those things that are actually search engines. Thanks. SimParadox (talk) 03:25, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Vertical Search Engine Category?

I understand that this is the proper way to ask for one of my company's websites to be included in a wikipedia page. My company owns and operates several vertical search engines. Would it be possible to add a category for vertical search engines and add (Five Mushrooms Food Search Engine) to it? Five mushrooms falls into the category of "portal" as described in the vertical search page of Wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:45, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I suppose you can add the category if you want, but this list should only be for search engines that are documented >in< wikipedia. As in, your search engine must have its own page (and hopefully one that's been around a little while). If your search engine happens to have had 3rd party notability confirmation (as in some news outlet or trade magazine) of the notability of your search engine, then it shouldn't be too hard to be included. However, we also generally try to discourage self promotion. Of course, drawing the line as to what's more self promotion and what "ought" to be included in a page is a very hard task.. Anyways.. I see that neither Five Mushrooms nor Five Mushrooms Food Search Engine link to an article, so you're in for an uphill battle. Root4(one) 22:09, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

-- Wavelength (talk) 16:22, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

I have found, after closer scrutiny, that six of these are listed on List of search engines.

That leaves thirty-four.

I have edited Multisearch so that the first sentence now is:

  • Multisearch is a multitasking search engine which includes both search engine and metasearch engine characteristics with additional capability of retrieval of search result sets that were previously classified by users.

Archie is disambiguated to Archie search engine.

Can we add Monster Crawler to the meta-search engine list?

About Monster Crawler combines the power of all the leading search engines together in one search box to deliver the best combined results. This is what we call metasearch. The process is more efficient and yields many more relevant results.

Monster Crawler provides an easy way to search more of the Web by harnessing the collective power of the most popular engines. The Internet is an enormous and constantly changing medium, making it impossible for any single engine to reach the entire Web. Using our algorithmic metasearch technology, Monster Crawler takes results from the leading search engines (Yahoo Search!, Google, MSN, Ask), eliminates the duplicates and delivers you the most comprehensive set of results. You benefit by obtaining a quicker, more accurate set of results to your query.

Monster Crawler's algorithmic metasearch technology blends and ranks the results derived from each of the separate engines based on the specific terms you type. If, for example, you type the words "computer prices", the resulting search will include many commercial Web pages containing information on businesses offering computers for sale. If, on the other hand, you type the words "computer technology", your results will be weighted toward articles, information and other research about computers. Monster Crawler also provides multimedia results including images, audio, video, news, and local information.

History Metasearch engine Monster Crawler was founded by several Southern Illinois University graduates in 1999. It quickly grew a following among internet users who enjoyed the capability to query multiple search engines with just one click. Monster Crawler grew rapidly among the local college and St. Louis Midwest markets. Monster Crawler now attracts a worldwide market and has one of the highest retention rates in the industry with over 50% of our users visiting 30 or more times per month. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:27, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Can we add to Media search engines?

With database of hundreds of thousands 3D and creative graphics item links, 3DSN (3D Search Network) gives user the ability to quickly and easily locate right graphics content at right online resources and for the right price (or for free if any).

The ability to run multiple search sessions within one browser window makes search process more intuitive. Open one more browser window and you will get 10 search sessions (unlike Google standard search which offers one search session per browser window).

There is another cool feature at 3DSN: 'My Searches' catalog. User may run as many searches as he likes and store selected links in 'My Searches' catalog. Once registered, user may save 'My Searches' catalog content for future use.

There is even more. Users now have the ability to rate, comment and report content. Any item you like/dislike could be commented and/or rated. The stuff you feel is distributed illegally could be reported. So do not put your project in jeopardy when you are planning to purchase 3D creative content online, - check at first, - the content may be reported!

comparison shopping engines

In the meantime, I re-added the comparison shopping engines.
The search engine page says "A search engine or search service is a document retrieval system designed to help find information stored on a computer system, such as on the World Wide Web, inside a corporate or proprietary network, or in a personal computer. The search engine allows one to ask for content meeting specific criteria" This is an extremely broad definition, given the extremely broad meaning of "document" in this context. These systems find documents about comparative prices. This is not linkspam--this page is intended to list anything in widespread use of or technical note.
Can those who do not like it please explain the criteria by which these are not search engines but the property or business search engines are?
Personally, I do not particularly like the term "search engine" but, again, what is a good alternative?DGG 03:32, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Thematic Search Engines

Could we re-structure the list of search engines adding a category "Thematic Search Engines"? This could potentially include "News Search Engines", "Property Search Engines", "Charity Search Engines", "Business Search Engines", "Medical Search Engines". Thematic search engines often employ semantic web techniques and thematic entity extraction (e.g. a legal search engine may be able to identify references to laws or definitive legal texts; or a property search engine may be able to identify zip codes), making them a somewhat special category. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 21 Nov 2006.

This could make some sense if this were a normal article rather than a list. When you are just making a list, how are you going to evaluate which ones do thematic entity extraction? Will you have someone verify that feature before making the addition? So far this page is just a pure list of names. And will you change the criteria for a search engine being included?
