Custom Site Search for Password Protected Site
Posted on 2013-10-25
I have a site, let's call it mysite.com, that requires people to use a username and password to access. Mysite.com provides these people access to restricted information, materials, etc. and prevents my competitors from viewing this information.
I would like to incorporate something like Google's Custom Search on Mysite.com to make it easier for my users to find stuff. So, I have two questions.
1) Can I set up a Google Custom Search for a password protected site?
2) If this is possible, will this content be viewable from Google? I do not want my competitors to view this information.
If there's a better solution, I'm open to suggestions.
