I need a good search engine that will only search the content of my domains and not connect to any external sources. The data related to my domains should function as an internal database only. Part of the idea is to obtain a high quality standard by selecting only the best results from external sources. 1/ The information on the web is put there by humans, but it seems that large quantities are of a considerable low standard. 2/ The information is found found by what I term external search engines. 3/ They do find a lot of useful information, but also much more useless information. 4/ Humans have to select what information is relevant or not anyway. I'm working rather intensely with the criterias of such a selection process. Lately I have investigated a lot of oppotunities using Googlebot, but I am not able to judge which site search engines are worth the time and money or not. Also, to which degree am I allowed to customize such a product?

Have you looked at the Google Mini?


If you like the google search engine and how it indexes, then they have a product that you can put in your office that will index only what you tell it to.

Thanks for the advice Lawrence.

I have examined Google Mini and it's just beautiful. No doubt that Google are really good at their game. Your choice reveals excellent understanding of the issues in question. It also seems quite clear to me that this solution has its greatest potential in a disorganized information scenario. The more disorganized your level of information is, the more you need a highly capable instrument to organize and bring forward the required information. However, my level of information is not disorganized at all at this point. But it's also true that it perhaps sooner or later will be exposed to the risk of becoming increasingly disorganized simply because of a greater and greater number of informations. I openly admit that I'm totally convinced that Google Mini is a superior choice. I cannot surpass it.
