Any suggestions on a site search tool? A search engine for our public internet site - very small site. We don't have direct access to the server, so going the index server modification route isn't the best move. I've looked at Search Engine Pro, Zoom and SiteSearch - no clue which (if any) is better. Found them all online. They're all under $100. Looking for a small search engine for our approx. 50 page site. Anyone? Anything?

thx-

Not sure if it'll meet you're needs but I like Atomz, assuming they still offer a free account for small sites (got mine a while ago). Customizable with fiddling and delivers email reports etc.

Not everyone is so keen, though, A site search for "Atomz" throws up a sizeable list of comments, suggestions, alternatives etc. e.g. [webmasterworld.com...]

Thunderstone's Webinator is right for you. [thunderstone.com...]

EDIT: Webinator offers a free version of their product.

A non-partisan answer would be to check out www.searchtools.com - it's got a pretty comprehensive round-up of site search products.

I'm surprised noone mention FreeFind. www.freefind.com

You can have site search capabilities for free. They do a nice job as far as I can tell. Spider your site whenever you tell them to, set you up with a sitemap too if you want.

I like both Atomz and Freefind. Freefind has some really nice features.
