    Search doesn't work in localhost


    It works fine for the search in web, but doesn't work for localhost. Any help will be highly appreciated.

    That's because Google has no way of indexing your localhost's content, it cannot go out and spider a machine that isn't accepting connections from the internet.

    SO WHAT SHOULD BE THE IDEAL CHOICE? If i use XSLT search, it just search the content in xslt engine. mean to say i have .net user control and when i put it on to page, search doesn't work for .net user control. How do i do that?

    Viral, why do you need the search to work on your localhost, if you know that it works in your live environment? If it's for styling purpose, I sure that you can just use some dummy data and style that on your site. But as Sebastiaan says, google needs to index the site first to know which content the search engine has to search through.

    And the problem you have with generated content through a .NET macro, will be solved when you use the Google Site Search, because googlebot will index all of your entire pages, including the generated content. So just stick with the Google Site Search when you have generated content through a .NET macro inserted in your richtext editors.
