    Make it Searchable


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    As an Internet user, you already know thereís nothing more aggravating than being unable to find what youíre looking for online. Poor site navigation makes you want to rip your hair out -- or at least, give up on the site completely and move on to the next. The last thing you want is for your traffic to give up on you or on your pages. Learn how to make it searchable, and make it easy to give your visitors everything they want online.

    How Does it Help?

    If you want to add search to your site, youíre going to have to take a little extra time and effort to make it happen. The search bar is only going to be one small facet of your existing site navigation, though it will be an important part of your pages. But if youíve already spent so much time on the existing navigation, how does making your site searchable help?

    When you add a search bar to your pages, youíre adding more than just navigational help; youíre also adding a certain level of professionalism and polish to your site. No matter how simple and straightforward your navigation is, a search bar will make it that much better and easier for traffic. Internet users like to save time. Itís much easier for visitors to simply type in exactly what they want, rather than to chase links in search of their desire.

    Anything which offers ease to your visitors is definitely to be desired, and site navigation can always be improved. The search bar helps take your site to the next level.

    Free From the Host

    If you use a Web hosting site to create your pages, adding search to your site could be extremely simple. Web hosting sites often come equipped with free tools and features meant to improve your site, and search is generally included as part of the package. Bravehost is one such Web hosting service which offers site search as part of their standard free Web tools. Many other hosting sites also include this service.

    When site search is free from your Web hosting company, itís as simple as clicking a few buttons to add the search bar to your pages. All you have to do is decide where to put the bar and choose the feature, and just like that, your traffic can look for anything within your pages by simply typing in a few words.

    If you donít use Web hosting, or donít use a Web hosting company offering search as part of the package, implementing search to your site will take more work than simply making the decision. No matter how you go about including search to your site, however, you can do it absolutely free of cost -- though perhaps not always hassle-free.
