    I use picosearch. It is free, doesn't use ads, and VERY configurable. Also has reporting capability.

    Only down side, is they won't index pdf files.

    I use Atomz.com . Highly configurable, good reporting, only one small button logo on the results pages, results pages can be customized to match your look and feel. Free for sites up to 500 (I think) pages.

    Blues - This is great, got it installed on 3 of my sites tonight. I've had visitors asking for a long time to make my sites searchable and this was the perfect solution.

    Do you know of any that would index all urls I give it to do so I could have one search engine that covers all my sites?

    It would have to be able to index over 500,000 pages at least.

    Thanks for any input you might have.

    Picosearch will do this for you. Multiple entry points, exclusions, and includes - down tho the document level. This is not an app or script that resides on your server(s). So it is way easier to configure and install.

    See my post above.

    Thanks Fred, I took a look at the one you recommended but would prefer one on my own server and one that is a bit cheaper. The free version would not give me what I want. I don't mind paying, just don't want to pay as much as they want per year.
