Search engine too broad (11 posts)

    Hi, the search engine is fine; it really finds anything, but it shows the entire page, not yet a link and excerpts of the page/pages where there's the searched word. How to achieve this effect? TY.

    Personally, I've taken a liking to the google search that can be implemented into your website to search the site.

    yeah, but that needs ur site doing exceeding well in google.
    and that wont work on recent posts (a day old for example).

    atomz.com site search is free for sites with less than 500 pages. it's very customizable, too -- you can exclude pages, directories, file types; you can index when you want and see the results; you can customize the search results page quite a bit! yes it's still hosted by atomz, but unlike google there's only one small atomz link, and you have much more control over the page template. for an example, visit http://orangepolitics.com

    on the other hand, it would be cool if there was a plugin to use the google api ... like this one for phpwebsite:

    see it in use here:
    http://phpgirl.com/index.php?module=google&GOP=main&MMN_position=8:8
    of course you need a developer token from google to run this; not sure what's involved to get one

    Now we just need to mount that on our blogs in a CSS frameset :)

    @wairoanz:
    I am a bit cynical when it comes to google and adsense. I would not recomemnd to put a actual adsense coded search URI coz google would eb checking for referral URIs and might not like the idea of you using a search result as a normal URI.
    I myself removed a similar URI in the post above u!
    Just my 2 cents :)

    @Sushubh
    You are right... from the Google TOS...

    All search queries must originate from individual human end users inputting data directly into a Search Box on Your Site(s).

    So I'll remove the link too.
