    Question combining search engine results

    Is it possible to combine results of different search engines (trying not to repeat the same links) on my site? Of course i'll be displaying the original sources of the searches.

    i would like my users to see results centered towards a particular niche while having the option of a broader search.

    thanks in advance

    You'll need to look for an API at each search engine you want to include and read the terms of service for each API to see if it allows that use. If you try to just scrape the result pages, you could end up having your IP blocked.

    Google's search API terms of service, for example, require that you put "Powered by Google" next to any search box using the API, and forbid charging for access to any pages powered by the API.
