My site search keeps listing the confirmation page in the results, and I don't want it to return with the other listings. How do I keep it from doing it that?

You could either:
1. put this code in the header of the page you don't want indexed:
<META NAME="robots" CONTENT="NoIndex,nofollow">
2. Forbid a specific page via the robots.txt file. It would look like this:

I'll give it a try. I know those meta tags, but wasn't sure which for a site search. I know the search engines follow those rules, but I guess a try to see what works will be the way to start.

the page is still coming up in the results, and my site search brings about results real quick. Here is what kind of search I have:

seems to be talking about "HIS OWN SITE SEARCH" not search engines..
Lurker.. You might want to check the documentaion on your site search script.
It sounds like it is one provided by your host..
"But that is the kind of search my web host offers"
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..

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.
