search within the site

Postby notuo » Sat May 21, 2011 6:18 pm

Hi. I need your help here.

Any ideas of (php is better) a software to search locally in a site? I know google has their version but the results are joined with ads and we don't want that.

Thanks in advance,

It mostly depends on what your site is made in. Like, if you're basing it on a PHP framework, then check the framework's documentation since many PHP frameworks come with built in site search capabilities. If your site content consists of static pages then you can use software like Lucene, although it can be difficult to set up. If you're storing content in database, then you can use search feature of your database. As I said, it depends what you used to make your site and how you store its content.

Not framework, not database. Just plain html with some pages (the search is almost plain in this case).

I did a search too, found sphider, swish-e, orca, searchtools.

Any of you has little more knowledge of them?

Thanks

ou can use Google's site: syntax to restrict your search to a single Web site. Make sure there's no space between site: and your Web site. Follow with a space and then your search terms. You don't need to use the "http://" portion of your URL.

site:google.about.com power search tricks

You could also widen the search to include all the About.com Guide sites:

site:about.com google

This same search can be widened to include all the Web sites within a domain.

site:edu text buyback dates

Google's site: syntax can be mixed with other syntax, such as AND and OR searches.
