We present a comprehensive model for quantitative evaluation and comparison of search engines. The model is based on the LSP method for system evaluation. The basic contribution of our approach is the aggregation of all relevant attributes that reflect functionality, usability, and performance of search engines. In this respect our model is fully consistent with the ISO 9126 standard for software product evaluation. Performance analysis of competitive search engines is based on our search engine benchmarking tool (SEben) that is also described in the paper.
