MegaSearch Dashboard Widget for NoteTaker
About MegaSearch Dashboard Widget for NoteTaker
Different search engines use different methodologies to prioritize results. Because of this, the current top four search engines (Google, Teoma, Yahoo!, and MSN) all yield different ordering (and, in most instances, content) for their top-listed results. It would frequently be very useful to be able to conduct a search on all four engines all at once", retrieve the results, and open them. Additionally, it would be desirable to eliminate any duplicates, and sort the remaining results according to the average of their individual search engine rankings: this is why MegaSearch was created.
This widget takes a search query, posts it to Google, Teoma, Yahoo!, and MSN, and collects the results in a NoteTaker notebook. Any duplicate results are eliminated; the remaining results are ordered as follows:
- Results that show up in more than one search engine are grouped together according to how many search engines returned the result in question;
- Within each group, results are sorted according to the average of their individual search engine rankings.
