I once long ago had a search-function on my website, that visitors could use to search for words on my site only. But then this function stopped working when the supporting site demolished the service.
Does anyone of you know about a free searching service to be installed on private websites?
I do not mean Google search buttons but a search that is confined to the particular site.
Thanks
Heinrich

Control + F Nov 4, 2005

Just hit Control + F and when the box comes up, put in a word and it will find it anywhere on the same page, but only the same one.

This does the trick.

Sorry ? Nov 4, 2005

Yes, I know that ctrl+F. As I stated in my posting I need a search for the SITE, not for a PAGE. There are hundreds of pages on my site.

I like Atomz Nov 4, 2005

Greetings, Heinrich -
I have had the "Atomz" service on my own website (www.AmiPros.com) for a few years now and find it highly acceptable for the price (free!) and still feature-filled/reliable. You can get a free version of their major program (more for bigger companies) as long as your website is under 750 pages. You can customize your search/results page to some degree and what I like the most -> you get automatic emails once a week showing the top searches made on your website during that past week.
Check it out here:

Thanks Sherey, Nov 4, 2005

I'm going to try that out. The registration process was the most complicated I've seen anywhereicon_smile.gif

Google search, restricted to your website Nov 4, 2005

You can use Google for a site search - check out SFÖ:s website for an example: www.sfoe.se

You could implement a similar function in your website, surely you can even restrict the search to your site.

Regards from Sweden
Antje

mnoGoSearch Nov 4, 2005

mnoGoSearch and htDig are two freeware website search engines.

I've only ever had htDig working on Linux though I read it is just about possible to get it working on Windows. There is a Windows version of mnoGoSearch.
