I've used several search engines for the Digger Archives,
from the Glimpse system that Webcom had set up, to the Microsoft Frontpage
search page, to the Atomz search service. Now
I've added Google's site search. It is by far the most complete search
engine to date. Google even indexes the "new Guestbook" pages that are
contained deep inside the Forum database. There is one definite (and one
potential) drawback to Google. It insists on putting its sponsored links on
the search results page. The potential drawback is that Google is a dynamic
search engine. Every month its search spider updates the index. It's
possible that one month it might delete sections of the index for our pages.
For now: here's Google. (Thanks to Leonard Raznick for suggesting this
me know if you have any disappointing results.
Google the Digger Archives!
