Another one of those search engines!
I am one of the lovers of google and use it most of the time. Before Google was major I used to use a number of search engines such as Dogpile and altavista.
Dogpile.com's main page has a search box. You can search for a number of things including the web, images, audio, video, news, and yellow pages.
Once you type in what you want to search for you need to press "go fetch" in other words "search", quite a fitting name really considering the website's name.
Dogpile has became quite advanced compared to how it was in the past and is following in google.com's footsteps. It has now got a feature to add to your browser so dogpile is always with you wherever you go on the web.
Once you have searched for your particular item you will be given a list of websites with a relation to your search. The one thing that bugs me with the search engine is that is only shows you 3 pages of results... WHY!!?? lol, you can press 'next' but this will only take you within the 3 pages of results they have given you. This means that only the major websites are coming through and can be really frustrating if you are looking for something particular.
Overall Dogpile is pretty average, I would only really use this website if Google was not working!!
Try it for yourself!! xx
