MetaSearch Engine: Features List
1. Latest parallel-processing
- Can handle lots
of engine-modules with much faster searching.
2. Truly 100%
positioning and Professional quality customization
- All dynamically
generated elements can be placed anywhere with-in the dynamic result
output space (Template based). Positioning is no longer controlled by
the script (results/links, Tool-Box, Link-Bar, Page-Number, Total result
number and ALL other relevant elements can be placed as required.
Furthermore, individual result HTML, Link-Bar is fully customizable.
You can choose how each result output should look-like, How the Link-Bar
should look like (including the option to set 'Prev', 'Next' style labelling)
and more. Entire output can also be customized in ANY Language
(excluding the actual results returned by the major engines/sources).
You can also choose to stop any dynamic elements from showing up
or show them in multiple places/locations.
3. Advanced (Boolean)
- In addition to
usual 'all the words', 'any word', 'exact text' (phrase) it can automatically
detect advanced boolean connectors (+, -, "", AND, OR, NOT,
and, or, not) and handle the search accordingly.
4. Relevant Keyword
Matching and automated Keyword-Logging management
- Can produce relevant
Keyword matchings (based on previous searches). The Keyword matching
output is also fully customizable and can be placed anywhere with-in
the dynamic result output space. Keyword log files are duly rotated
by the script (customizable).
5. Fully customizable
- The Link-Bar can
also be customized any way you want. You can put any delimiter between
the links (to other result pages), put 'Previous', 'Next' buttons with
your chosen label. You can also show the Link-Bar in multiple places
with different HTML attributes.
6. Dual Search
- Automatically handles
both 'Keywords' and 'Ask-A-Question' (in English) based queries. (your
visitors can simply ask a natural question or search using 'Keywords').
'Ask-A-Question' support for other languages (Spanish, German, French,
Portuguese, Dutch) can optionally be added (further customization costs
7. Ranking On/Off
- Search results
can be internally ranked with duplicate urls removed (DEFAULT) or set
to off to show ALL results.
8. Detached Module
- Engine modules
are totally detached from the main script. Any engine-module can be
added or removed or replaced any time without any service interruption.
(Users with sound perl knowledge can build their
own engine-modules. An easy to follow module building guide can be provided
to existing customers on request).
9. External Redirection
- unlimited support
for redirection to other search/localsearch scripts with original query.
You can add all these options on the same search form (search-box).
10. Advanced Query
- The input query
can be used in many ways to create dynamic linking on result pages.
The input query is available in 3 different form: raw, encoded and ultra-clean
encoded. The ultra-clean encoded query is quite suitable for passing
to any professional Ad-Banner management program (like 'Dart') to produce
Keyword based ad-banner exposures (your ad-banner program should be
able to show banners based on keywords). The script also generates unique
random numbers to support functionalities (like stopping banner caching)
recommended by most ad-banner programs.
- Built-in support
for any number of specialty search options. Example: Auction-Search,
MP3-Search, FTP-Search etc. Users can build their own specialty search
bundle (must be good at perl programming). No need to modify the main
script. No service interruption is required. Each Specialty-Search
has its own customization file and Template and can have totally different
- Availability of

- 13. 'Advanced
Directory' Friendly (Complex Portal System)
- If you are using
our 'Advanced Directory' or plan to
use it in future (including country-specific Directory packages: Spain,
France, Netherlands, Germany, UK etc.); you will be able to integrate
all MetaSearch specialty-search options (main web-search and any other
Specialty-Search packages: auction-search, mp3-search, news-search,
ftp-search, book-search, job-search etc.) on your Advanced Directory
(both directory pages and search pages) same way as on your Advanced
MetaSearch Engine. This will allow you to build an interlinked Complex
Portal System quickly and easily. Both scripts support each
other and runs as an unified application. No need to deal with any
