How to Rank on Dogpile, The Meta Puppy Alt Engine

Dogpile is a very interesting Search Engine that very rarely ever gets webmasters any traffic, but is this an issue with skill or with luck? Since each Search Engine has their own algorithm, there is most definitely a way to get additional traffic from this Alt Search Engine, and personally on Inflation we get nearly 100 visitors per month from this engine (I know that doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s a LOT more than nothing). And so, in this blog post, I’ll show you how to rank on and get additional SERP traffic, read on or subscribe to our blog for additional information.

How to Rank on Dogpile, Content is King


So ranking on Dogpile is no different than most other Search Engines, however one thing that I have found is that they LOVE long form content, and they love aged domains, as some of the top ranking factors for their platform. A lot of the reason for this, is that Dogpile is actually not just any other search engine, and their “algorithm,” if you can call it that, is to pull from the top rankings of every single search engine. So if you are searching something on Dogpile, or “Dogpiling” if you will (doesn’t exactly have the same ring as Googling….) then you are getting say the top 2 results from Google, then spot 3 and 4 are the top 2 from Bing, then 5 and 6 are the top 2 from Yahoo, and so on and so forth. This means that their search results have much less of a bias from artificial SEO practices and from one SERP taking over the results. It is a very interesting concept….and I actually had a similar idea when I was about 15 years old and I was meditating one day (the idea hit me after reading Think and Grow Rich and Meditating!)


What is a Meta Search Engine, and How Stole My Idea!

So, they obviously did not steal my idea because they executed actually before I was born, with Dogpile being around since the early 90s. I did however, have this idea about 12 years ago when I was 15 years old. I was meditating, and I had just read Think and Grow Rich, so I was very motivated (yes I know….15 years old…naive and very impressionable). I had the idea for a website called, it was going to be a Search Engine that pulled the best results from all the other Search Engines, beating out the competition by using their own results against them. >>>Enter, they did just that, and they are essentially an irrelevant search engine these days, yes they have a top 20,000 website in the world, and yes they get 3,000,000 visitors or so per day, but they have such an infinitesimal market share that they might as well not exist at all, nuff said.


Final Thoughts on the Dogpile Search Engine, How to Rank on Dogpile

So, that’s the gist of how to rank for Dog Pile, basically if you rank for Google, Yahoo and Bing, which is done primarily through good content and a natural link profile, then the Dog Pile rankings will come naturally. Dogpile as a Search Engine does not have its own unique algorithm per se in the same way that Google, Yahoo or Bing does, in that they are really just pulling the best results from each SERP and putting that into their own results pages. Dog Pile is basically the average of all the main Search Engines, and in some cases…that might just be preferred. Leave a comment and subscribe for daily blog post updates!
