Searchwiz started in 1998 as a meta search engine, since 2004 it uses its own crawler-based database [kd].

ONLINE Magazine (March 2000): »Searchwiz.com (http://www.searchwiz.com) is a new Internet meta search engine that lets users find information by simultaneously searching ten popular search engines at one time, including Yahoo!, Lycos, Excite, and AltaVista. The top ten results from each search engine are displayed on the screen, giving a user approximately 100 potential sites to explore with each search.« Source

About Searchwiz (2004): »SearchWiz.com was first launched in 1998 as one of the world's first 'meta search engines' and has now evolved to include it's own database of the web's top web sites.« Source
