Dogpile is a search engine that fetches results from Google, Yahoo! and Yandex, and includes results from several other popular search engines, including those from audio and video content providers. It is a registered trademark of Blucora, Inc.

History[edit]

Dogpile began operation in November 1996. The site was created and developed by Aaron Flin and later sold to Go2net (which was in turn acquired by Infospace).

The Dogpile search engine earned the J.D. Power and Associates award for best Residential Online Search Engine Service in both 2006[2] and 2007.[3]

Dogpile started a campaign in 2008 to use proceeds from site traffic to raise US$1 million for animals in need.[4]

In July 2010, Dogpile was ranked the 770th most popular website in the U.S., and 2548th most popular in the world by Alexa. Quantcast estimated 2.0 million unique U.S. visitors a month, and Compete estimated 1,953,280.[5][6][7]

Dogpile formerly fetched results from Ask and Bing.
