Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: What is batch searching?

A: Batch searching is the concurrent or simultaneous processing of a single search query (keyword or search term) into multiple websites, or similar processing of an entire list of keywords into one or more websites.  Traditionally, websites provide for only a single search term to be entered into a single search bar. Our patent pending process allows websites to be searched and data to be extracted faster than any dynamic search application that we know of, allowing productivity gains of up to 25,000%. Our technology is so unique, we strongly recommend first time visitors use the sample search and the free version on our home page to grasp the incredible, time saving power of this free tool.

A: Yes. If you can search on Google, you can use batchSEARCH.  Searching a list is easy: simply Cut and Paste your list of search terms into the batchSEARCH box, pick your websites, and "Search". Unlike page scraping, harvesting, or data mining programs, there is no programming, coding, or html mapping of any kind. We offer a user-friendly web browser application that anyone can use.

A: Search results should appear on your screen quickly, with larger batches requiring more time. Typically search results are delivered on screen within 1/3 of one second up to 2 seconds per search term. We have no way of verifying how Your internet connection, RAM, processor, and the particular server being queried can or will affect your particular search processing and delivery speeds; we have designed this application to render results from keyword lists and multiple websites faster than any dynamic, on-screen search engine that we know of.

  • Q: How are the search results delivered?

A: All search results are rendered on your screen in streaming real time and may be viewed as individual search term/result folders, a master grid or in image thumbnail mode. Each result is hyperlinked directly to the website page from which it originated for quick access to details or to make purchases from the originating website. All search terms are returned in an indexed, formatted manner and the original entry order is maintained.  Automated Service delivers these results to subscribed Members via RSS or email.  Enterprise Solutions customers can get results in a variety of ways including direct database population.

A: Yes, using single search terms Free users can search up to 6 websites at once and Members may search up to 15 at once. While searching a list of keywords, 3-8 websites can be search at once.  The search output grid, with its indexed and formatted structure, then becomes a powerful data, listing, image, price, product, and inventory comparison tool.

A: Yes - Members may save results with a click to Excel or .csv file or have results delivered via email or RSS is they have subscribed to the Automation Service.

  • Q: How is batchSEARCH different from Screen Scraping or Web Harvesting programs?


1) batchSEARCH is keyword driven, user controlled and non-robotic; batchSEARCH is a multiple use tool with dozens of real world applications for amatuers and professionals alike - web harvesting and screen scraping are task specific, expensive, complex, and generally extract data utilizing crawling technology as opposed to browser requests.
2) batchSEARCH requires only the ability type in a search term or cut & paste a list of terms. Scrapers and harvesters are quite difficult to use and require HTML mapping, coding, intensive help tutorials, or paid professional help;
3) batchSEARCH is a live, on-screen, dynamic query entry web data research & extraction tool. Scraping and harvesting generally require a hard coded query list to robotically collect and store data;  our automated services are initiated with non-robotic selections of sites and keywords and render keyword driven, freely offered HTML page data only.
4) batchSEARCH features dynamic queries seeking targeted content, while harvesting features static programs seeking to crawl target directories and extract all content.
5) batchSEARCH is priced substantially lower than most scraping and harvesting programs and services.

  • Q: I own a website, can my visitors batch search my site?

A: Yes. Anyone can search, with single keywords or lists of them, ANY website using our application.  However, sites that are manually entered by our users deliver only generic results and snippets as opposed to actual product listings, images, prices, model numbers, etc.  Website owners using Enterprise to add their sites to our Featured Websites inventory can dicate what information is extracted and displayed during a search from our Site; we can then deliver the links, images, prices, descriptions, quantities and other data that website owners prefer their site visitors to see.
