Thank You!

for something like that your website should run from a database, and from what it sounds like, it's just a static HTML page ... in that case your best bet would be adding a google search to your site ...

You could try using either Google Adwords or a site called http://www.FreeFind.com . I use FreeFind on a lot of my sites and like it a lot. It allows you to customize the Search page to look like your website (which Google doesn't). They do have a free account, but just like Google they display sponsored listings on it. If you upgrade to the pro account then it's only your results. Hope this helps!

HTML Code: [ Select ]
<form action="search.php" method="post">
<p>Search: <input type="text" name="search_query" size="20" /><br />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search" /></p></form>
  1. <form action="search.php" method="post">
  2. <p>Search: <input type="text" name="search_query" size="20" /><br />
  3. <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search" /></p></form>

That would give you a search box ;)

Check out Sphider - it's a free PHP based search platform that incorporates easily into your site and has a very intuitive admin area.
