Search Boxes on Your Site

Adding search to your website used to be an extensive and costly undertaking.  Today there are still plenty of high priced, high end solutions to add search to your site, but it’s hard to imagine a scenario when a Virtually Ignorant user would need one of them.

Most likely, whatever content management system you choose will offer search for no additional cost as part of the software.

If you build your site on a platform that does not have search or you want something more robust, we recommend Google Site Search.

Search can also be a way to earn advertising money on your site.  Google’s Adsense program allows you to put a search box on your site that will give your users Google search results.  If your users then click on the ads on the search results page, you can earn commission.
