Fazzle Multi-Lingual Meta Search Engine – Spotlight #6
Fazzle.com is a meta search engine which is available in English, French, and Dutch. Fazzle searches over 120 different search engines to deliver ‘fast accurate results’ accompanied by a preview page along with each listing. Fazzle’s search results include Web, Downloads, Images, Videos, Audio, Yellow Pages, White Pages, Shopping and News.
Unlike most of the more popular meta search engines on the market, Fazzle’s results are not littered with sponsored links and Fazzle only dedicates the #1 spot in the search results for advertising. The rest of the search results are gathered from the multiple search indexes which Fazzle runs searches though to determine its “Best Pick” and 20 other results on its SERPS pages.
Its video search does not have thumbnail shots of videos like Yahoo offers, but does bring in relevant results from the Altavista video search engine. News searches scour various news sites via Moreover, and then cluster those results to the left side of the page by category.
Fazzle also includes some interesting features in its search results including the ability to sort those results by popularity, title, URL, description, and domain along with the option to email specific results to friends or colleagues.
