WhatUseek launched a crawler-based search engine in 1995. This was followed by a directory containing paid-listings. Later (ca. 2005) a meta search engine was offered which offered the contents of the whatUseek Collection, the whatUseek Web Index, and other sources. The website is still online today, but the results are only read from the directory. A search engine no longer seems to be involved.
