    Question What Type of Search Engine do I Need?

    Hello.
    I'm looking for a search engine which directs a user to a specific page instead of displaying a results list, is there a name for this?

    I'm currently using Sphider which has indexed the entire site, url's, keywords and content which is no good as it displays far too many results, confusing the user.

    I don't get it.

    Suppose the user asks to search for the word "the".

    How the heck would any search engine decide which INSTANCE of the word--let alone which page with the given instance--to display to the user?

    I think you need to explain what it is you are looking for, in reality.
    An optimist sees the glass as half full.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty.
    A realist drinks it no matter how much there is.

    Right, even I don't understand your question?
