Custom Topic Search

Now you can create your own topic specific search engine in minutes. Gigablast's revolutionary, new technology allows you to create a list of up to 500 web sites (or subsites) and a search box that searches just those sites. Even get back the search results in XML so you can customize their appearance. Give your visitors a unique search experience, completely free of charge. For instance, if you have a site about horses, why not create a horse-specific search engine? Gigablast is committed to bringing you new and useful internet tools.

Here are some sites that use Custom Topic Search: (Contact us to see your site listed.)

To make your own custom topic engine, follow the steps below:

  • Copy and paste the following html code into your web page to display your search box:
  • <form method="post" action="http://www.gigablast.com/search">
    <input type="text" name="q" size="60">
    <input type="submit" value="search" border="0">
    <input type="hidden" name="sc" value="0">
    <input type="hidden" name="iu" value="http://www.mydomain.com/logo.gif">
    <input type="hidden" name="iw" value="200">
    <input type="hidden" name="ih" value="50">
    <input type="hidden" name="ix" value="http://www.mylink.com/">
    <input type="hidden" name="sites" value="site1.com site2.com site3.com ...">
    </form>
  • Replace www.mydomain.com/logo.gif above with the url of your logo.
  • Replace 200 and 50 with the width and height of your logo in pixels.
  • Replace www.mylink.com above with the url to visit when your logo is clicked.
  • Replace site1.com site2.com site3.com ... with your own list of sites that you want to search. Up to 500 of them. The sites are not just domains, but they can also contain paths. Try harvesting the sites from web directories such as dir.gigablast.com and dir.yahoo.com.[external link]
  • Optionally, change the value for the sc parameter from 0 to 1 if you would like Gigablast to perform site clustering. [external link]
  • Be sure that you do not nest <form> tags otherwise the submit will not work.
  • Enjoy your own custom search engine.

For instance, the following HTML produces the search box you see below:

<form method="post" action="http://www.gigablast.com/search">
<input type="text" name="q" size="60">
<input type="submit" value="search" border="0">
<input type="hidden" name="sc" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="iu" value="http://www.gigablast.com/logo.gif">
<input type="hidden" name="iw" value="434">
<input type="hidden" name="ih" value="51">
<input type="hidden" name="ix" value="http://www.gigablast.com/cts.html">
<input type="hidden" name="sites" value="
