SEARH ENGINE

How do you set up an internal search engine for a web site? For example, if I am selling products for someone to quickly find what they are looking for?
Does anyone have the appropriate coding or information about software?
Thanks Gavin

YOu will need to use a CGI program or something like ASP... You could keep all the values in a database and then search through that displaying the results... So, you would need access to a CGI-BIN or have access to ASP on a server...

Gavin,

How are you constructing your product line-up?  In flat text files? In SQL? In something else?  Any search engine must be dovetailed with the database it is searching.  Please give us some more info on yout structure . . .

If you are using IIS as webserver, you can use IndexServer to index & search your site. Also other webservers might have their own search facilities coming with the product.
Indexserver builds a database of your website and provides you with pages to search through it.
