1. How to add new Search Engines to SSSpider™.
2. Search Engines that are recommended for inclusion into SSSpider™.
3. How to obtain SSSpider™ at a discount or free of charge.

1. To add a new engine to the SSSpider™ Registry:

Select the pop-up menu item NEW

Using the right mouse button, click the pane "Search Engines", select the menu item "New"; then follow instructions of the SSSpider™ Search Engine Wizard.

2. Search Engines that are recommended for inclusion into SSSpider™

Right after the original installation, SSSpider™ will be contacting a limited number of general-purpose search engines during the query execution. Despite this fact, the product provides you with the unique capability to create your own search categories by adding new search engines and combining them into perfectly targeted search sets. You may add to SSSpider™ any or all of the engines that are mentioned below, and even more. Adding new engines (especially those which specialize in the area of your interest such as, medicine, politics, software, music, sports, etc.) may considerably increase the search quality of SSSpider™ reports.

Look through the following table and select an engine you would like SSSpider™ to communicate with when processing your queries. After it, click the application Search Engines pane using the right mouse button and select "New": the SSSpider Search Engine Wizard™ will appear. Enter into the Wizard screen the title and address (URL) of the engine you have chosen, then follow instructions of the Wizard to include your engine in SSSpider™. When you exit from the Wizard, do not forget to "drop" your engine onto an existing or a newly created Search Set.

Engines that are not recommended for inclusion into SSSpider™

Excite - Web Search

http://www.excite.com

Search in Web

The functionality of this engine is identical to the SSSpider™ Quick Reports (i.e., collecting and merging reports obtained from other engines) except for the fact that with SSSpider™ you may control which particular engines are to be queried.

Overture

http://www.overture.com

Search in Web

Originally, this engine was present in the SSSpider™ Registrty. But, recently it has been excluded from the SSSpider™ automatic updates due to the fact that having merged with Yahoo, Overture does not longer perform searches (or, duplicates the Yahoo functionality, which does not make much difference).

It is recommended that you delete this engine from your local SSSpider Registry.

You are invited to send us your messages providing URL's of the engines you use in your local copy of SSSpider™ and you would like to share with the rest of SSSpider™ users.

See also: How to add new Search Engines to SSSpider™ and How to obtain SSSpider™ at a discount.

Hint

Useful hint: You may easily find Web engines which support searches in your native language by issuing something like "French-speaking Web search engines" with SSSpider™ (or, "Russian- or German- speaking", etc.). In a couple of minutes the product will bring in front of your eyes a list of engine URL's, which you may add to the product Registry using our intelligent SSSpider Wizard™. Just as an example, you may follow this link to see a collection of European-speaking engines, which you may use to make SSSpider™ provide the best possible search results none of these engines can when it works alone (as you know, SSSpider™ collects, checks, and re-scans each of the pages suggested by engines).

3. How to obtain SSSpider™ at a discount or free of charge.

Kryloff Technologies invites all users of SSSpider™ 4.0 and later versions to send us your messages providing new search engines that are not yet mentioned in the above table (scroll this window to see the list of Search Engines that are recommended for inclusion into SSSpider™).

3.1. Everyone who supplies Kryloff Technologies with at least 6 (six) SSSpider™-compatible search engines plus one more engine which is not fully SSSpider™-compatible, and which domains are not yet mentioned on this page, will be given the possibility to purchase SSSpider™ at the 50% discount.

3.2. All those who provide us with at least 12 (twelve) new SSSpider™-compatible search engines plus one more engine, which is not yet fully SSSpider™-compatible, will be granted a Registered version of SSSpider™ 4.0 free of charge.

Please, do not send us URL's of meta-engines or those ones which search on a particular Web site only and which are not interesting to the rest of SSSpider™ users unless these engines perform searches in huge enough databases such as, shareware/freeware software sites, news archives, etc. Kryloff Technologies reserves the right to reject some or any of the engines you suggest with or without any explanation. Web sites and engines, which perform searches in adult content or/and other information that may be offensive for the rest of SSSpider™ users, will not be considered.

The subject of messages in which you list additional search engines, should begin from the word "SSSpider". Upon our reception and approval, all those who have suggested 6 new engines, will be provided with a location, from which they may purchase a registered version of SSSpider at the 50% discount. Those who supply us with at least 12 new search engines, will receive from us a message containing a Personal Product ID string and a location, from which they can obtain the Registered version of SSSpider™, free of charge. Do not hesitate to provide us with URL's of your local search engines, which search in languages other than English: as you and other people from your country start using SSSpider™ with these engines, this will be only beneficial both for KT and the rest of SSSpider™ users. Please, do not expect us to answer your message the same day: allow some time to process it.

Users who have purchased SSSpider™ at a discount as well as all those who have suggested additional search engines and received SSSpider™ free of charge, will be enrolled into our technical support, subscription service, and will have the right to purchase future versions of the product at discount prices along with those who have purchased SSSpider™ at the full price.
