SO you might try contacting them and ask how you can exclude directories and pages within the script they provide.. Most search scripts have some way of excluding pages and directories..
If that is the case, all I can say is this:
I never liked the kind of search my web host offers, so I went with Atomz.
I was using Atomz Search before and they are good but, they only index 500 pages for free.
When I made more than 500 pages I had to look for another one and after I try a few of the free SE
on the web, I found the Fluid Dynamics Search Engine, they don't have a set limit of pages that I can index and they have many extra features that would cost extra money on another site.
You might want to take a look at the free Fluid Dynamics Search Engine here
What is the Fluid Dynamics Search Engine?
Just look at some of the free Features here
and then decide for yourself.
Ever since I started using it, I have not found any problem with it and I like the way that I can even put some ads on the search result page.
