March 2nd, 2013 1 comment

It is clear that Wordpress search functionality has the following known weaknesses:

Does not properly match keywords
Sorts results by date instead of relevance to search keywords
Is Limited to just your site

Integrating Google Custom Search Engine into your website can give you several advantages:

Better quality and relevance of search results
Search scope can be extended to more than one site (not only your site)
Look and feel of search results can be customized to match the design of your site
Better monetization with Google Adsense
Autocompletion of typing, result sorting, and thumbnail previewing
