Search Facility Benefits
Strangely, a recent survey reveals that more than 65 percent of webmasters do not prefer a search engine on their sites for a variety of reasons like time constraints, apparent complications, cost-effectiveness, etc.
But it is an undeniable fact that search engines have a host of benefits, particularly if you have a large site or an e-commerce site, a site covering multiple products/services, or a site dealing in an array of subjects. It is common knowledge that if your website has too many pages, then the time required for browsers to collect specific information becomes tedious.
A search facility provides your visitors an easy and relatively effortless way to find the desired information. Even more if your site uses Flash/DHTML menus and certain navigation methods not compatible with some browsers. It is also a fact that a search facility is a great way to help visitors who are either impatient or in a hurry to get the specific information they need.
I am sure the tips and information discussed in this article will help get you off to a good start and answer many of your questions including the most important one, how to have a site search on your web page.
