Ixquick is the world's most powerful search engine employing the most advanced metasearch technology.

Ixquick search results are more comprehensive and more accurate than other search engines. Ixquick's unique capabilities include an Advanced Search, a global search and power refinement.

More comprehensive search results

When you search with Ixquick search engine, you are searching many popular search engines simultaneously and anonymously. Combined, these engines cover more of the Internet than any one search engine alone.

More accurate search results

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.

Also, while irrelevant Web pages can be "optimized" to fool a single search engine's algorithm, it is much harder for a page to fool all the search engines.

Advanced Search

Professional researchers rely on advanced search methods such as Boolean logic, phrases, wildcards, and field searches.

But different search engines support different advanced search methods, and require the user to access them in different ways. Keeping track of these differences can be time-consuming and burdensome.

Ixquick solves this problem by understanding which advanced search methods each search engine supports, and how to access them.

At Ixquick, you can enter virtually any advanced search, using one simple syntax. Ixquick supports a wider range of power search methods than any one search engine has.

Ixquick then sends your query to only the search engines that can handle that specific search, translating it into the syntax that each search engine needs.

Global Internet Search

Ixquick searches the world:

  • Search the web in any of 18 languages - even Chinese, Japanese and Korean. In each language, Ixquick searches local and international search engines so you'll find exactly what you're searching for;
  • Hundreds of millions of hours of video content.

Power Search Refinement

Use Ixquick's Search Result Honing to pinpoint the search results that you want: Notice the check mark () and X mark () that appear near some results. If a result is especially good, click on to find results that are similar, and if a result is not what you are looking for, click the X to remove results that are like it.

Power Search Refinement can be activated on the "Settings" page.
