Dogpile says "as found on ASK.com."
So I went to ASK.com and put in the same keyword. And nothing came up

Re: On Dogpile but not Ask.com
Dogpile.com accumulate results from many search engines, much like
Webcrawler, among many others. The results are often a (re-)sorted assembly
or results with duplicates removed.
As to Ask, I am aware of front ends like Big.com, which use Ask results if
not just harvest them and then do further processing. The bottom line is
this: do not treat search engines that are merely using services as a
transparent glass. They can do whatever they desire to distinguish
themselves from others and claim to be unique (supposedly' better').
