I stumbled on Locoindex.com today, and I thought I would share it with you, because it could be a very useful tool for your next search query or it might be a nice example just how different search engines could be merged on one well designed page.

Locoindex is a simple way of searching things across the internet.

With Locoindex you can use a variety of different search engines such as Google, Yahoo, MSN, Altavista, Aeiou, Sapo, Alexa, Ask.com, A9, Exalead, Accona, Mahalo, Excite, Snap, Uol Brasil, Lycos and so on. Some of these names might be familiar to you, they might be new, or you may have known them a long time ago, before the Google Era.

It is very simple to use: just type your key words in the search box located on the top left hand corner, and then click on the logo of the search engine you wish to use. There is no need to type in your key words again if you wish to switch between the search engines. In my example I used the keyword “megaureter.”

If you wish to search for images or videos for example, just make that selection on the top menu bar, and another list of possible choices will pop up. There is no need to type in your key word again, as you can see in the example, and you can choose from a variety of other options such as: Directories, News, Videos, Images, Music, Knowledge, Social, Utilities, Bookmarks, Shopping and others.

I highly recommend Locoindex to you, because it is a truely useful site, in my opinion, and I hope to see similar all-in-one search sites emerge for diagnostic imaging. Let’s take Yottalook, Goldminer, RadiologySearch.net, and the rest of them on one page, shall we?

Ty for this post.
in loco index is a beta project started july.2007 and still adding new search index´s.

The Further reading item – All Search Box – is a copy from locoindex done by someone that has stolen all the logos, concept, imagens and even the presenting text. ( easy to check domain date, pagerank and alexa traffic and backlinks )

Just want to put this post so visitors can give locoindex the right credits for this work and idea.

For further information concerning locoindex pls feel free to contact in@locoindex.com

Pedro,
thank you for clearing that up for us. If you have noticed, I updated the post according to your information. It is a shame that the idea behind Locoindex was alread stolen. I wish you good luck with your project, and please let me know if you go from beta to full version. I would like to feature it on this blog.

Locoindex uses all the mentioned search engine in a dedicated frame. This is nothing new and especially nothing revolutionary. My ten year old son could do this.

Locomotive,
thank you for your input on this topic. While the programming concept behind Locoindex is simple, the result is great. Afterall, most ideas that we call great are so straightforward that one might think that he/she should have utilized the idea first, and that is where ingenuity lies in my opinion. I hope your son will take part in shaping the Internet when he grows up.

5. alexa new ranking system - June 5, 2008

There is some controversy over how representative Alexa’s user base is of typical Internet behavior. If http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main?url=www.fortunehotels.in Alexa’s user base is a fair statistical sample of the internet user population, Alexa’s ranking should be quite accurate

I am not quite sure how this ties in here.
