AdSense for Search or other search engine indexer Web based or computer based? shallow msg:4105708 1:22 pm on Mar 27, 2010 (gmt 0) I'm using Zoom Search engine but wondering if I should have my web developer change it to AdSense for Search. I've been very pleased with Zoom Search engine but wondering if a web based application would be preferable. Thank you.

Does anyone use AdSense for Search? If so, do you find it effective? SEOPTI msg:4106210 2:46 am on Mar 29, 2010 (gmt 0)
It is effective but only 1% of people and less are using the search box. shallow msg:4106335 11:05 am on Mar 29, 2010 (gmt 0)
It is effective but only 1% of people and less are using the search box. If it's effective, why are so few using it. Where did you get your statistics? gohome msg:4107018 3:20 pm on Mar 30, 2010 (gmt 0)
I use Google CSE instead of AdSense for Search. There are a few differences which has kept me with CSE. Works well on my sites with some even having a healthy income from searches. netmeg msg:4107020 3:26 pm on Mar 30, 2010 (gmt 0)
Depends on what you mean by "effective". If you mean is it a good earner - it is for me. I have sites built around Google CSEs, and they quite well. If you mean is it an effective search appliance for a site - well, sorta. Depends on the site. I have had problems with it on some sites (where we're only using search for the site pages themselves, no off-site pages included) because I can't weight the search enough to influence the order of the pages.
