Dave’s Comments:

As of July 2007, Google is now offering a paid (no advertising unless you link search to your Google AdSense account), hosted Web site search service for small/medium sized Web sites.

It’s called “Google Custom Search – Business Edition” (Google CSBE) and it has 3 price points for Web sites of varying sizes:

1-5,000 Web pages, $100/yr.

5,001-50,000 pages, $500/yr.

Over 50,000 pages, contact Google for pricing.

Google CSBE is worth checking out, especially if you haven’t added site search to your Web site as yet.

NOTE: Google has since re-named this product “Google Custom Search”.
