Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Forum Moderators: phranque
Wish list, etc
Cross platform capable would be best
Integrates into the clients site (Look & feel)
Easy to install and setup
If free, no ads
Ideally requires no setup on server as we work with many clients’ web hosting companies, some of which are difficult to work with
However, this first client is Windows with index server running
Flexible for users (such as advanced search options, etc)
Webmaster can see the searches that have been performed
Ability to work with advanced analytics such as Click Tracks or Google Analytics
We never used Google search and have a couple of concerns, the biggest being that the way I understand it Google site search uses the Google database not the site. In other words unless all or most of the pages are indexed the search will not be performed on the entire site.
Since this site search will be implemented as the new site is launched it could be months before all or most pages are indexed.
I expect Google Site Map will help speed this up
