Switched after Google discontinued the Google CSE, this was the easiest alternative to use that I was able to find.
Mike B. on G2Crowd
We found a perfect match for providing search and replacing Google Custom search on our multiple NationBuilder websites. AddSearch is lightning fast and easy to implement.
Philippe B. on G2Crowd
AddSearch is a very affordable product, it is fast and provides instant search results + preview of the pages. When Google stopped their commercial website search product, AddSearch has proven for us to be a great alternative.
User on G2Crowd
Easy to use, high speed and has a very nice presentation of the search results. It also handles spelling mistakes quite well, which I think is very important for any search function. Overall, I would recommend this product to anybody looking for a very easy way to implement a search function on their homepage.
Consultant on G2Crowd
The surpasses the features available with Google Search. Being able to do on-demand indexing and URL removal has been a huge factor in client success, as we don't have to wait for days to pull in new content or remove old. The AddSearch team has done an amazing job working with us to come up with a solution that will fit our clients' needs.
