Summary The ubiquity of the Internet and Web has led to the emergency of several Web search engines with varying capabilities. A weakness of existing search engines is the very extensive amount of hits that they can produce. Moreover, only a small number of web users actually know how to utilize the true power of Web search engines. Therefore, there is a need for searching infrastructure to help ease and guide the searching efforts of web users toward their desired objectives. In this paper, we propose a context-based meta-search engine and discuss its implementation on top of the actual Google.com search engine. The proposed meta-search engine benefits the user the most when the user does not know what exact document he or she is looking for. Comparison of the context-based meta-search engine with both Google and Guided Google shows that the results returned by context-based meta-search engine is much more intuitive and accurate than the results returned by both Google and Guided Google.
