    Search Algo

    I want to have a huge database of products that people can search through but I'm not sure how to do it. I've been thinking of trying to create it myself, but it seems overwhelming... making sure it case doesn't matter, sorting the results by relevancy, etc...

    is there a ready made search algo anywhere that i could tweak for my site?

    btw- this isn't to search the pages on the site, its a product search. I want it to display products, prices, thumbnails, etc so something like google web search isn't an option

    If you are using MySQL to store the data, then try looking into FULLTEXT searching in teh mysql documentation. It is very useful and easy to use.
