    Search Technology

    I'm trying to create an industry-specific search engine. Basically, I'm looking for technology that would allow for search queries to only be applied to a list of pre-specified domains. Any suggestions?

    You'd have much better luck if you posted this in a more appropriate forum.

    You posted it in the wrong forum.

    You should however be more specific. Are you looking to interface to an existing SE like Google or Yahoo and filter the queries or set up your own search engine where your spider will crawl only a preset list of domains?

    Either would be an option. My main concern is that it be able to produce high quality results from a pre-specified list of domains on a page that is customizable enough to support our advertising.
