What is Google Search Doing for You?

Milad Yazdanpanah - 10.16.2009

About a month ago, I highlighted the suite of applications that Google offers. One of the applications that I didn’t mention was Google Search. This is still in beta but free to use and very easy to configure. You have the ability to have this search engine provide results across multiple URLs. Let's take a closer look:

 

 

Something that is often overlooked is accessibility of information within a website. We spend time and money to create primary, secondary, and sometime tertiary levels of navigation, but how long will it take the site visitor to get to those pages? A growing trend for site visitors is to search for a keyword or phrase that meets their needs. Google has trained us very well in using their search engine. 

 

 

 

 

Given the limited resources of nonprofits, Google Search is provided at no cost. The real purpose of this discussion is to see how your organization will utilize this tool. 

 

 

 

Application Highlights:

 

  • You can harness the power of Google to create a customized search experience for your own website.
  • Code provided to plug into template
  • Include one or more websites, or specific webpages
  • Host the search box and results on your own website
  • Customize the look and feel of the results to match your site

 

So, how will you use Google Search for your organization? If you are currently using this application, I would love to hear from you.  Leave a comment and let us know!
