FusionBot personal website search engine comes in five flavours to suit requirements of different web sites. The free version is good for small sites with 250 (or less) web pages while there is no page number limit in the Platinum version. The free personal website search version puts the FusionBot logo on the results page and offers a basic customization of that page. You can also create a site map for your web site using the FusionBot service. One nice feature that I found out was that FusionBot is able to follow Flash links. The bot indexes PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, RTF documents and password protected content. There is also support for SSL indexing. You can create search engine regions or partitions and can configure the results page so that the visitor will be re-directed if no matches are found. This as you can understand, increases the stickiness of your web site.
