ixquick .. meta seach engine

ixquick .. meta seach engine
Ixquick is a metasearch engine: when you search Ixquick, you are searching many popular search engines at the same time. Combined, these engines cover more of the Internet than any one search engine covers.
An Ixquick result is awarded one star () for every search engine that chooses it as one of the ten best results for your search. So a five star () result means that five search engines agreed on the result.
This is significant because search engines choose results in different ways, and each approach works well in some cases and poorly in others. A result with many stars was chosen for many different reasons, and is a consensus choice of many search engines.
Search in any of 18 languages - even Chinese, Japanese and Korean. In each language, Ixquick metasearches local and international search engines so you'll find exactly what you're searching for.

How Do Search Engines Handle Chinese Queries
http://www.webology.ir/2005/v2n3/a17.html
How Do Search Engines Handle Chinese Queries?
This article explores the characteristics of the Chinese language and how queries in this language are handled by different search engines. Queries were entered in two major search engines (Google and AlltheWeb) and two search engines developed for Chinese (Sohu and Baidu).
Criteria such as handling word segmentation, number of retrieved documents, and correct display and identification of Chinese characters were used to examine how the search engines handled the queries.
The results showed that the performance of the two major search engines was not on a par with that of the search engines developed for Chinese.
