    Google-like search engine

    Hey,

    I was thinking of starting a google-like Albanian search engine. I was thinking of having a crawling script like google and also a human directory listing.

    Since I first have been on the internet I've been thinking to why Google is so successful. I think it's the good results, its pure simplicity, and non-diversification. I'm looking for a script that would be simple, be able to crawl websites by searching other search engines with a specific keyword, and deliver results fast a cleanly. The directory could be very simple just a simple submission and an admin side that approves the site.

    Anyone who has had any experience with search engine scripts please contribute to this thread.

    Thank you,
    Ardi

    Try looking into PHPDig, I've used it before and works fairly well for spidering/indexing pages

    Here's the link: http://phpdig.toiletoine.net/

    willmullis thank you for the response. PHPDig looks simple and that's what I'm looking for, will install it and check how the spidering works.

    Any suggestions on a directory like scirpt such as Yahoo! ?

    Maybe not entirely true.
    Have look over here: http://www.google.com/options/

    For your directory you'd probably do good to learn about databases.
