Link: Zippy - The webmaster's meta search engine. No sooner do we have one search engine that I like then along comes another. Zippy is UK based, which is always a nice thing to be able to say, and it's got lots of interesting functionality, though primarily for webmasters, as the title indicates. On the home page you can obtain information on a domain, compare top 10 results for a specific keyword, and compare two sites.
There's a search box (obviously) and the results provided start with related searches from the big 4. The results themselves are sparse - just titles, but this can be expanded into a summary with a mouse click. Icons indicate which search engine picked up which result. With any result you can find out more information about that particular domain, such as the age of the site, IP address, data on the site from Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, Alexa and Technorati, with information such as backlinks, deeplinks, indexed pages and so on. Even more data is available however, in the form of the top 100 ranking keywords, server information, text information, phrases on the page, and textual content.
Zippy is of less value to the average searcher who just wants information, but to fair it doesn't advertise itself as that. It will be much more interesting and useful for web authors who want to know more about their own sites, and to assess any competition they may have.
