Searching your website


I'm a relative beginner to web development and I'm just starting to map out a website that I'd like to create.

One feature that I think would be important would be a search function. I probably wouldn't need it for a while but thought it would be good to add it from the start in case it it needs a lot of work later to make sure the pages can be searched correctly in order to get better results.

What are my options? From my very basic understanding there are options such as using google to search the site for me. But would I better creating something myself even if it's time consuming and more complex to ensure that it is more up to date and gives better results?

You'd be very hard pressed to do search better than Google, to be honest. That is, ya know, what they do.
