Best practices for adding search engine to site

P: n/a
Hello everyone,

I would like to know what you typically use to add a
search engine to your sites. Do you build your own
search engines, do you use existing PHP classes,
do you use htdig, etc. ?

My preference would be to use htdig, but on the htdig
site there's only a small list of hosting providers
that provide this and google doesn't help me too much
either. So I would also like to know your experience
about whether hosting providers normally offer htdig
or if it is an exception or if they do normally offer
it but always against a high price ?

Best regards,

Eric

No longer maintained, but: http://phpdig.toiletoine.net/

Or, at the cost of having adverts in search result pages, you can use
freefind - http://www.freefind.com/

Take a look at http://www.ysrnry.co.uk/cover1.htm to see it being used,
and to see how it can be customis/zed.

Thanks, I think I'll try Google first, as Andre suggested,
but if I need more customized search and result pages,
I'll take a look at these alternatives.
