What site search option for Chinese website?

 10:22 pm on Jul 7, 2010 (gmt 0)

Does anyone know the best technology platform to use for internal site searches on a Chinese language web site?

Hi Lijin, first of all Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

What kind of architecture is the site currently running on? Apache or IIS; PHP, ASP, Java, etc. If the search function has to integrate with the current site it is often a good idea to choose something from the same architecture family.

It is using ASP.

I'll see if one of our Microsoft platform experts can jump in to give you some advice on this issue.

I use the Google Custom Search Engine on my Chinese websites. It had the best search results of any of the packages I looked at. Operation doesn't seem to be affected by the recent Google troubles in China.

you might consider using Lucene.

sorry i don't have more to offer.
i was peripherally involved a few years ago with a multilanguage site that used KinoSearch, which is based on Lucene, and i believe that was due to the capability to handle chinese language search.
