View Full Version : Multi-site search programming?

04-08-2009, 06:44 PM
I'm not sure where I should post this but I am looking to build a search tool where, when you enter a search query, it is simultaneously sent into the search boxes of a set of other specific websites (as opposed to something like a Google custom search), after being modified to suit the search tools of each particular site, and the results from all the searched sites appear on one page.

How would one start with something like this? Is there a name for the things involved in this? I'm pretty non-technical, but I can figure a lot out once I know what to research.
