    Default Searching a site with ASP

    What options do I have in providing the user a general search of a moderately-sized site? Do I use the FileSystemObject to search files for a string? Or should I index a site in a database then query that?

    Why re-write the book, use MS Index Server it&#039;s fast, indexes in real-time, understands office docs and best of all is free.
