    The importance of Meta Descriptions Tags has changed over time. Initially it was felt that they helped a web page rank highly for the keywords within the tag, but there's general agreement in the SEO world today that this is no longer the case.

    Meta search engines enable users to enter search criteria once and access several search engines simultaneously. Meta search engines operate on the premise that the Web is too large for any one search engine to index it all and that more comprehensive search results can be obtained by combining the results from several search engines. This also may save the user from having to use multiple search engines separately.

    A meta search engine searches multiple search engines from a single search page.
    Meta search engines work in various ways. With some, a single, simultaneous search retrieves results from multiple sources, usually with the duplicates removed. Others offer a separate search of multiple content sources, allowing you to select the source(s) you want for each search.
    When a single simultanous search is offered, only a limited maximum muber of pages from each source are returned. The cut-off may be determined by the number of pages retrieved, or by the amount of time the meta engine spends at the other sites. Results retrieved by these engines can be highly relevant, since they are usually grabbing the first items from the relevancy-ranked list of results returned by the individual search engines. Keep in mind that complex searches, such as field searches, are usually not available.

    Metasearch means instead of getting results from one search engine, you'll be getting the best combined results from a variety of engines
