Integrate Search Into Your Site With ASP.NET

Windows Live™ Search crawls content on the Internet and also exposes search functionality to developers through a Web service that allows the search to be scoped down to just your site. You can then render the results however you see fit.

Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 is another good choice. It's a complete site-building and management solution that also provides robust search functionality. Figure 1 shows the results of a SharePoint Search integrated into a custom ASP.NET page.

To create a consistent, easily managed navigation solution for the site, one can use ASP.NET site navigation. ASP.NET site navigation offers the following features:

Site maps You can use a site map to describe the logical structure of your site. You can then manage page navigation by modifying the site map as pages are added or removed, instead of modifying hyperlinks in all of your Web pages.

Programmatic control You can work with ASP.NET site navigation in code to create custom navigation controls or to modify the location of information that is displayed in a navigation menu.
