Creating a word search for a website
I'm looking to have a word search for my site to replace an online service, which crawls selected pages of links. Perhaps this isn't really possible, but I want to ask.
I currently subscribe to an online service that crawls a few pages of links, then indexes them and allows me or my visitors the ability to search for "any word" or "all words" or "exact phrase." The search results open in a new page, and on that page resides the ability to perform more searches.
I am satisfied with having this service, but it's an annual fee that I would like to lose.
What this current service involves is a few web pages with nothing on them but hyperlinks. More pages are added when the room is needed. These page addresses are designated to be crawled, but hidden from being displayed in the actual search results. I can manually conduct a re-indexing, but it's also configured to automatically re-index on a weekly basis. By performing a manual re-indexing, a newly uploaded web page is immediately available for searching.
This may not even be possible through a web app, and what I'm asking for may be ridiculous. I just need to ask.
Thanks for taking the time. Anyone may respond when they have the time.

It actually depends upon how your website has been set up. Even the complexity depends upon how it has been set up. I am assuming that text is not in database. It is definitely possible..I mean the company which is offering you this service is doing it.. so it is possible.
Why don't send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can speak about it further. It is a challenging project and my programmers will be excited to work on it.
Let me know.

Would you share a link to your site where I could see this existing word-search service in action?
