Hello people.

I'm looking to create a simple search engine capable of searching multiple search engines simultaneously together (e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) and then displaying the results below for all sites on the same page.

I don't want each search engine results page opening up in individual windows or anything, nor do I want people to have to manually select the search engine to search with. Just a single page where a user types in something, pressed [Enter] and then presented with all results from multiple sites on one page (without duplicates).

I'm also looking to do this with image and torrent sites, etc.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks a million guys. :thumbsup: You have bigger brains than me.

You mean like dogpile.com? or such "meta" search engines?

Yes, very much like Dogpile my friend. :) :thumbsup:

In the future, I hope to introduce features to search hundreds of torrent sites in one go, etc.

How would I do this please? ;)

lol Hire a bunch of VERY smart programmers and analysts and spend the next 2 or 3 years developing the algorithyms for such a project.

What I mean is, its not just a case of coding a few pages in php or such and really its beyond the scope of just asking "how do I do this".

Wouldn't I be able to just be able to link back to their sites and display the results they usually display, except where I want? I mean I've seen similar codes that can achieve similar results on other websites (but sadly not what I'm looking for).
