View Full Version : search engines

Hi all,

I'm trying to track down a simple and functional search engine script to search the pages on my website. If anybody has any idea where to find something like this, please do let me know.

Thanks :thumbsup:

You might try a one that is hosted. I am told that Atomz (http://www.atomz.com/search/trial_account.htm) is quite good. You might also try Whatuseek (http://intra.whatuseek.com/?synd=box&chan=6) . If that is not what you want the try CGI ResourceIndex (http://www.cgi-resources.com/) . They should have several scripts that you can use.

Thanks, requestcode :thumbsup:

Any idea if there's something out there specifically in Javascript?

Take a look at these in JavaScriptkit's very own Free Scripts Section.

Word to the wise - javascript search engines have a major advantage that you control which pages are returned specifically in response to which keywords; this is also the major disadvantage - that this limits the search to the keywords you've specified.

A server-side search engine will index the actual page content, and be more useful for most situations. I also recommend Atomz - I've used them for years with nothing but good results.
