Google Site Search Replacement

software development

#1

Google has discontinued sale/renewal of the Google Site Search since Apr 1 2017.

Does Dreamhost offer something that would allow me to search a non-WordPress site?

Any suggestions?

I don’t mind spending money.

Thanks!

Hi,

There are lot of different options out there, ours Cludo being one of them. We will just crawl your website like GSS, so it doesn’t matter what CMS you uses.

We are focusing on good support for all customers, so we are not 100$/year (we start from 199$/month).

i use DuckDuckGo’s search. Wouldn’t say its the best, but it does find most of your website. I made the switch a while ago when google penalized my website, and when they do that, their search doesn’t work. DuckDuckGo is less likely to penalize your site so I chose them as my default search engine for searching my site.

What is your site, so I can see what it looks like?

Thanks!

Here is the exact link to the search: http://www.confessionsoftheprofessions.com/search-confessions/

By default, i think DuckDuckGo puts on a “strict” filter which means all adult content is filtered out.

I’m sure there is a way around it, but I haven’t tried… to remove that “strict” filter.

I don’t have pornography on my website at all, however, I do have “mature literature” which may contain language not suitable for minors, and so, those types of posts won’t show up on DuckDuckGo.

Yeah, I made the switch a while ago when google penalized my website, and when they do that, their search doesn’t work.
