Search Engine grants you access to most of our data. You can use keywords, apply filters and construct datasets that best suit your needs.
When you first click on ‘Search Engine’ from the homepage, you will see this screen:
The title of this working document is ‘Untitled’ you can change this when you are saving your dataset.
Just below are our two filtering options:
- Search in content which allow you to search on specific keywords, just like Google.
- With Choose a field you can choose over 200 data variables to narrow down your search.

Next to the filtering options you can witness the amount of records we have in Dataprovider.com. You can also view the amount of records at the left-bottom of your screen.
Now let’s take a look at the results. First we will talk about the Sheet overview.
The Sheet results literally shows you a sheet with the results based on your search query and filters. Every filter you add affects the results. You can also select extra fields to your results by using the right most column. Press the arrow next to the category (Geolocation for example) to view and select the corresponding fields. You can read a description of the field when pressing the blue info button.
When checking the box in front of Geolocation all Geolocation fields will be added to your results. When clicking it again, all Geolocation fields will be hidden from your results. You can also start typing for a field, like postal code, in Search column.
There are three more ways in which you can view your data: Statistics, Maps and Trends.
Use Statistics to get a more comprehensive overview of all websites in the dataset.
If you want to see more visualisations on certain subjects you can add more filters or use the Search column on your right hand side to add more fields. Remember that adding filters will influence your results, unlike the Search column.
Check out our information about how to use the filters.
You can also take a look at the map of the world or specific region and watch your dataset come alive. This option is very impressive for presentations.
Trends shows how the data has developed over time. You can view the Relative data or the Absolute data. You can also export the graphics for internal use.
Save your dataset with the Save button at the top right of your screen. This way you can continue exploring the data at any time you want.
Should you need to export your dataset, simply click the yellow button Export and generate a Raw data file, or statistical report.
Last but not least, you can Monitor a dataset for realtime changes and get notified of these changes through the channel of your choice. Follow the steps to create a monitoring rule.
