Google custom search
Search is big, right, you know that. Why not create your own search engine using Google’s Custom Search. Custom Search allows you to use the Google search engine as designed by you. You get to determine what is indexed and what gets shown. I hacked together a very simple marketing related search engine I called GoGetMarketing to demonstrate this tool.
In this case I actually created a unique website and am hosting my own search engine. This could be a really great approach for people who want to create very narrow niche search tool that could provide hand picked results based on your own network of bookmarked sights – this could be far more beneficial than what Google would index and return.
Custom search would be a great way to create a local search engine and improve your local search results. You can manage all the sites indexed in your custom search engine or even give access to contributors to edit the site in your engine.
In addition, this tool allow you to place custom search on your own site or blog and create your own search on your site or easily include every blog on your blogroll in the search results.
