How to Add My URL to MetaCrawler
Add your URL to Google, Yahoo or Bing if you want the site to appear in MetaCrawler search results. (adress bar image by Wiktor Osiecki from Fotolia.com)

Most popular search engines, including Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask, only list results contained in their custom-built indices. In contrast, meta search engines such as Dogpile and MetaCrawler do not search their own databases. Instead they bring together information from multiple search providers and display a combined, ranked list of search results. As a result, if you want your site's URL to appear in MetaCrawler searches, the site must first be indexed by Google, Yahoo or Bing.
