The Search Engine Equivalent Of The 555 Telephone Numbers Seen In Television And Film Is?

Dogpile
WebCrawler
Finder-Spyder
MetaCrawler

Answer: Finder-Spyder

Although television and film writers aren’t above referencing real life places, events, and products, there’s a fake TV Land version of nearly everything–including search engines. While it’s hard to resist a good “Did you Google it?” jab when penning out a script, many writers call on a generic search engine that’s the search equivalent of the ubiquitous 555 area code (used in films to prevent people from dialing real phone numbers they see on the screen).

The search engine in question, Finder-Spyder, has been making appearances since the mid-1990s when it popped up in an episode of The X-Files. Although the name has stayed the same over intervening years, the crew of different shows and films have dutifully updated the look of Finder-Spyder to reflect the color schemes and search engine landing pages popular at the time of filming.
