Zafra, Arnold (February 14, 2008): »VROOSH.com is a metasearch engine that also acts as a metacrawler utilizing fast parallel technology for speed and accuracy. Metasearch using Keywords in any language, use Advanced Search to search in a specific Country or metacrawler for MP3,and FTP sites.« Source

Majhi, Sudip (February 11, 2016): »This is yet another nice meta search engine that can be used by anyone. Although, you cannot find web or image search, yet, you will get country-based search. For instance, if you are searching for something that is related to US, you can choose US version of Vroosh to get better search result. Similarly, you can choose Canada or worldwide version of Vroosh.« Source

»All returned metasearch results at VROOSH.com are sorted with the most relevant internet results first. The relevance is determined by how many search engines have the web site listed, how well it is ranked with each particular engine and the overall relevance to the actual word or phrase searched. The number of asterisks beside each result indicate the overall relevance.

VROOSH! also maintains an index of websites. If a website is in the VROOSH! index it appears before the regular metasearch results, identified as [vroosh result]. However, it must meet the same search criteria as our regular metasearch results and is filtered through the exact same algorithm to insure search query relevance.« Source
