Is anybody familier with FREE site search (except google adsense site search) that will allow ads display on top of search result.

Are you asking about showing above the listings in the SERPs or on regular websites? And - server side or browser side?

Client side browser means software or BHO that has to be installed on users' computers, doesn't it?

Fluid Dynamics Search engine allows you to place ad blocks at top of your site search results. It's free and needs to be installed on your web server (I installed it a long time ago but from memory it was easy enough).

I have programmed site search on my main website, and wrote to Google on this subject and they replied that it was OK to place Google Ads on the site search results pages.

It may be worth a quick email to Google if you wish to use a free search engine on your site, and add Google ads to the results pages. I would imagine some free search engines [ for integration into a website] may have some spyware in them, but Gogle will set you straight on the subject, and clarify if it's OK.

>>Fluid Dynamics Search

Right, I've heard of that one for a long time. But it's server side, not something installed on the users' computer.

You say you dont want AdSense Site Search, does this also exclude a Google Custom Search Engine?

It's maybe worth a look:

[google.com...]

You can restrict the search to just your site and link the AdSense earnings to your account. You can also boost URLs that match specific patterns so pages you think are of more value to your users are likely to be further up (maximum of 5,000 patterns).

Will this work on a site that Google-search has knocked out of the index?

No it won't. However you can choose to go with a model that every site is included and you give a 'boost' to some (or only yours), or exclude everything but what you included.

Either way the sites must be indexed by G properly, or it won't work.

In my experience the income, when linked to your Adsense account, from the ads is about the same as for G site search. Big difference the flexibility you get when using G coop.

I run a site search service. It does not make sense to display ads on the results pages because the ads will not be targetted to the content of the search results page.

That's correct for advertising that's contextual and not aware of the search string.

Running a Google CSE means Google serves advers based on the search phrase, this means the ads should be very relevant.

If you take the approach of running a site search with in conjunction with an XML feed for your adverts then you can also ensure the ads are as relevant as possible (limited by the relevance that the service that you rely on can get anyway). An example of this is using something like Sphinx for your site search and serving Overture adverts which are fetched based on the search string.

Running adverts on your own site search is not always the best option, but it can be helpful to users when you have few/no matching results so why not run the sites search and then decide whether to show the adverts based on the number (and relevance of site results).
