I'd like to put together a list of new and/or obscure search engines paired with which GET variables they use for search terms. Non-English search engines included.

If you could do a quick search for anything you want in some of your favorite search engine(s) and paste the URL in your browsers address bar from the results page here I would appreciate it. :D

If you could use the "Post Advanced Reply" button and check the "Do not automatically parse URLs:" box under your post I would appreciate it even more.
Of course if you have such a list & want to post that it's fine with me too.


I'll update this post with the cleaned up list once I feel I have gathered enough for a project of mine. :D

I sometimes use Scirus as an alternative to Google Scholar:


http://www.scirus.com/srsapp/search?q=mitochodrial+evolution&t=all&sort=0&g=s


the same search, but with some options selected from the "advanced search":

http://www.scirus.com/srsapp/search?sort=0&t=all&q=mitochondrial+evolution&cn=keyword&co=AND&t=all&q=&cn=all&g=a&fdt=0&tdt=2009&dt=fta&ff=pdf&ds=bmc&ds=nom&ds=web&sa=agr

Same search terms as before but this time on the Entrez Life Sciences Search Engine:

Do you want meta search engines too?

If so, here's one from Monster Crawler searching for Ozzu:

If it can possibly be found in an HTTP Referer header it's fair game.
