Site Search

All,

 

My search through the forums brought up some results, but everything was at least a year old so I figure I can safely revisit the question. Does anyone have recommendations for adding a site search to my site? I have an old service that I've never really made the most out of, and I'm considering moving elsewhere. I understand there's something on Cpanel I could use, and I've certainly considered Google, but I'd like to hear from you folks if there's something you especially like.

 

It's important that I have at least basic statistics off whatever I use, so I'd be grateful if you have any comments about the search reporting.

 

Free is also a requirement. :)

 

TIA,

 

Dan

http://www.freefind.com/ is free but contain some ads so it might not be what you are looking for, but it´s worth checking out.

 

I've used FreeFind on my site for about three years, and it's been a great solution for us. People can search easily, and I get weekly and monthly reports of the number of searches, popular search terms, etc.

 

We don't get many searches, so the ads are not a problem. They aren't very obtrusive, anyway.

 

Check it out HERE. (Try searching for my name, Sander, or Guantanamo)

 

Here's a typical weekly search report:
