News: Another XOOPS Search Engine

Posted by: miealexon 2006/12/15 23:00:00 9388 reads I\'ve created another dedicated search engine (powered by Google Search engine) for XOOPS related information and it is hosted by Google.

The homepage of XOOPS search engine is http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=002 ... 76038244159%3Apnlpimoc6i4

1. What you can do with XOOPS Search Engine?

* Place a search box and search results on your website.
* Specify or prioritize the XOOPS sites you want to include in searches.
* Customize the look and feel to match your website.
* Invite XOOPS community to contribute to the search engine.

2. Why is Google launching this?

Google\'s mission is to connect people to information - no matter how specialized or specific - as quickly as possible. The Custom Search Engine allows you to combine Google\'s search algorithm with your own expertise to create a customized experience - thus making access to specific information across the web easier for your users.

3. Which are the websites included now?

I\'ve just included what I visit often to keep me updated about XOOPS. Please feel free to add your favourites to the index which will give the right information what XOOPS users would like to see in their search results.

4. How does anyone access the XOOPS Search Engine?

There are several ways to access our Xoops Custom Search Engine:

* Use the Google-hosted Xoops Search Engine homepage:

http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=002 ... 76038244159%3Apnlpimoc6i4

* You can place the XOOPS Search Engine search box on your own website, where anyone who visits your site can use it. Paste this code in the page where you\'d like your search box to appear. The search results will be shown on a Google-hosted page.
