Infogrid calls itself a master internet index but for me it is a bit of an information overload, especially the homepage which seems to cram so much information into it that you are a bit dazzled and don't know where to turn. Very much directed at a US market, this site works as a metacrawling search engine and also combines e-mail addresses, news, news forums and directory links. It even rounds up offers from auctions and shopping sites in the shopping sections. If you want it, Infogrid are likely to have it and beyond the busy nature of the homepage, it's actually quite useful to have everything in one place. Unfortunately the majority of the links are geared to Americans and they haven't implemented any regional or local options for Europeans, Australians and well anyone else really. There's plenty of websites that offer to submit a site URL for you to hundreds of websites and often include this one but with it having a metacrawling search engine which trawls through Yahoo, MSN, Google and numerous other engines, it should end up there anywhere. At the top of the page you will see a search box and a scroll down menu to the right, this gives you the option to search in numerous areas from Google Web Search through to Mp3 archives and jobs. I've noticed that it really is a case of information overload though as the search often seems to stop working. It's a nice idea but the site is too geared to one nation, has a harsh homepage and doesn't really fulfill its promise.
