Comprehensive Search Engine List
This resource aims to provide a comprehensive list of search engines available across the world. For the purposes of this list, a search engine is considered to be any engine that will return a list of search pages matching a given criteria and that will also allow URLs to be submitted to it.
Each search engine has been listed according to the geographic region in which it serves (or in which it is based). Many search engines offer regional variations and these are then listed under the appropriate region. Under each regional listing the engines are listed alphabetically.
- Asian Search Engines
- Australasian Search Engines
- European Search Engines
- Global Search Engines
- Middle East Search Engines
- North American Search Engines
- South American Search Engines
- Comprehensive list of Meta-Search Engines
Comprehensive list of Meta-Search engines. A Meta-Search engine does not maintain its own list of web pages, but uses a number of search engines to perform the actual search.
Whilst most of the search engines listed here are generic search engines, some are specialised or niche search engines.
