Gathering Results from Search Engines

I am attempting to write an ASP page that will gather search results from a site (ie. Google, Lycos, Yahoo) that is chosen by the user, and format the results in my own page with a different style than those search engines.

Is this possible to do? If so, does anybody have a suggestion about where I can start?

    Google,and you may find more.


  • Yeah, I am aware of Google's API, but am after a means of gathering data from any search engine (doesn't really matter which one) to format the results in a style I am after.

    Is it even possible to go about doing this?
