ColdFusion Search Engine Using Google Coop


I went ahead and started a ColdFusion search engine with Google Coop. What's nice about it, is that it will favor results from web sites that I have specified (and you can volunteer to contribute to the engine as well), but it still aims to be relevant - so if there is a more relevent result it may still appear above your favored sites.

Here's a search box:

Hi Peter,

I was just checking it out, and clicked on volunteer. Didn't really mean to trigger that though.

Not sure why, but on my external site the volunteer link doesn't show. Going to need to do more investigation. if you are interested.

Remarkably easy to set up though. I don't care for the lack of control in how the search results are presented (size wise, etc) I think you can get more control through the search API, which I will probably try next.
