Meta-search engine

or META-search engine

A meta-search engine is considered by some as a superior form of search engine because it draws upon databases of several search engines, directories, and other sources in order to respond to an inquiry. The newer meta-search engines can be better than any one search engine because they can produce more directly pertinent results.
