I am looking for a search engine solution for "on site". I can't seem to narrow down if Google's free "site search" will include beyond my client's website. But what I am seeking is a search portal to only show results from my client's website.

I would appreciate any help in pointing to a solution someone has used/knows about.
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to all who continue to work this holiday :)

google custom site search [google.com] is an option and starts at $100/year.

There is also Google's Custom Search Engine
[google.com...]
I've been using that for a long time and never paid a cent.
[maybe I need to reread the terms and conditions if there's a paying thing too]

swa66 - are you using the tool which returns Internet results, too? I am looking for site only. Thanks!

Nope CSE can easily be configured to only return results of site(s) you want (either just one, or a set, or all of the Internet).

I reread the terms: all you need to allow are ads (but you earn money through adsense if you link it. To get rid of the ads, you need the paying version (which allows more: XML feeds, no google logos etc)

That's what I am looking at. Need to see if I can configure the dimensions of the search bar to fit a small space.

CSE search can be really small and you can use CSS to style it...

There may be affected by panda or penguin, not sure what you are doing with your optimization way to promote.. Have you ever used any black hat techniques, where google never like.

Have you looked at Zoom Search? It is very customizable if you take the time to learn how to use it.
