Add Search to Website

Hello,

I'm need to provide users with an ability to search my website but I'm completely clueless on how to do this. I need to setup a search box like they have here: www.iconfinder.com http://www.iconarchive.com/popular.html - I think both are using the same.

I have experience in html and have created a few static websites and use dreamweaver. It seems like most websites are using http://www.opensearch.org. I read the through the documents and got the feeling it will a long time to implement and requires someone with experience. I also came across this: a9.com

Is there a search functionality that can be more easily implemented that would provide good search results? Essentially, I'm looking for a solution that would not require days to build and can be implemented in a few hours. I have the static site built in dreamweaver already.

Thank you

Microsoft has a free version of their Enterprise Search Server http://www.microsoft.com/enterprisesearch/en/us/search-server-express.aspx

Its not the most powerful tool in the shed, but you can upgrade to a full license and it gets really powerful at that point.

If you're looking to go external for your website, something along the lines of Apache Lucene might be a bit better.  Requires some coding though.  Otherwise, Google has domain tools for allowing you to search your website using their engine.
