OK well I know of Google's site search such as CSE however I don't want to use them as an internal search engine.
What is the best alternative for a site search tool that I don't have to mess with? I don't want something locally as I have a forum, photo gallery script, static HTML pages, etc. I think my site search tool needs to be something external that indexes like a search engine.
I tried looking at Bing and Yahoo but didn't see a site search type offering.
So how do I get something comparable to the Google site search box for my site, except not use Google? Ideally I want something free but I would consider paid options if it's really good.

did you ever get a solution to this Swanny007?
there is a google search appliance and other enterprise search options, but that might be pricey for your purposes. Google Enterprise Search - relevant, easy search for intranets and websites: http://www.google.com/enterprise/search/ [google.com]

Using their search just gives them more insight into my visitors and what they are looking for. They take enough as it is from everyone. From what I can see so far, they have the best site search out there, though.
