Enabling Site Searching Using the Indexing Service

If you want to let remote browsers search your Web site for documents of interest, you can install and configure the Indexing Service. This service periodically scours selected Web-shared folders and documents and maintains a list of all the words it finds in them. It actually maintains two separate indexes: one of your whole hard disk, for your use alone, and another of the Web folders for Internet searching. It's sophisticated enough not to show results for documents Web visitors don't have permission to download.

Installing the Indexing Service

While the Indexing Service is not a component of the IIS package, it is a helpful ancillary service that can scan and index all of your Web site's content, and provides the database back-end for a site search capability. If you want to offer this kind of feature on your Web site, then install and configure the Indexing Service on your Windows XP computer.
