Hi experts,

I am looking for recommendations for a website search.  I looked into AdamZ which is now Websidestory.  Interested in others.

Also, one rep I spoked to told me how many outward facing pages my site had.

How did he do that?

Thanks for your help.

    I'm not sure what domain you're asking about or what type of search you're interested in.

    However, in looking at, Google offers a variety of ways to find the information you want.  

    If you go to Google and type in just the domain name, you are presented with many choices from the web pages Google has indexed to what other sites are linking to  

    Here's what Google will display if you type just the domain name:

    Show Google's cache of
    Find web pages that are similar to
    Find web pages that link to
    Find web pages from the site
    Find web pages that contain the term ""

    You can also check for backlinks, links from outside that are pointing and referencing to  Here's a tool you can use:

    Maybe others can suggest a bit more.

    Good Luck!

    Have you taken a loko at using Google's API? Depending on the number of searches and type of site it could be a good solution.

    You can get a API key from google at:

    And then either code your own search script or download one (one php script is:

    If you don't want to go that far then you could use the google search box on your site:

    Of course, these solutions  only work if your pages are already in the google index.

    A non google approach (again this is PHP) would be to use something like Sphider and restrict the results to your site. Sphider is opensource.

    Hope this helps.

    ps: if you want to check you site's backlinks do a search in Yahoo, Google tends to hold back the number of back links.
