Which search engines is my site indexed in? Tool query indexing tool for identifying which engines a site is indexed in LeeJ26 msg:226350 2:03 pm on Jan 21, 2003 (gmt 0) Hi,
Can anyone recommend a tool that will tell me exactly which search engines/directories my website is indexed in? I currently do this manaully and as you can imagine it is extrememly time consuming.
I have tried Rank Meter but the list of search engines is rather limited.
Many thanks, appreciations go out to anyone that can help.

While this may not be 'exactly' what you're looking for, they will all serve to show you who is linking to your site and, in turn may show an Engine, Directory or two.

We prefer not to recommend individual tools - but there's a large selection of rank checking programs to try out here: [ ...] dmoz.org rogerd msg:226353 2:31 pm on Jan 21, 2003 (gmt 0)
The marketleap site cited above also has a "pages indexed" checker - it won't tell you how you rank, but it's a quick way to check to see how well a site has been indexed by a few major SEs. Marcia msg:226354 4:06 pm on Jan 21, 2003 (gmt 0)
Don't take their word for it with Google's backlinks, though. It's incomplete at best (aside from violating their TOS).
There really are only five to worry about at this end of the planet now - Google, Alta Vista, Inktomi, FAST and Teoma. Third party checking really can't compare to looking first hand and seeing who else all is there - and for what and why. That alone is worth the time to hand check.
