The Canadian software company SIMIAN Systems, Inc. has released SiteSearch Professional Edition. SiteSearch Pro is a PHP-based Web site search engine that is designed to allow Web site users to search not only Web files, news stories, and product database, but also any content from disparate file types that are saved on a Web server including Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF, vCard, iCal, RTF, HTML, XML, MP3, and Photoshop (PSD) files. Custom types may also be added. Built in both PHP and Apache Lucene project, SiteSearch provides a documented XML-RPC API for integrating external applications with the SiteSearch query server. Also, search results can also be retrieved in RSS newsfeed format. This allows Web masters using SiteSearch Pro to provide automatic "Related Forum Posts" or "Related News Stories" features on their Web site in one search page. SiteSearch can optionally search one Web site, or multiple Web sites, or the entire internet using the Google database. SiteSearch Pro is part of the Sitellite Content Management System.
