For over 15 years, Zoom has been the secret weapon of choice for web developers around the world.
With the release of Zoom 8.0, we now have the most refined and comprehensive self-hosted search engine solution on the market. Giving you full control to create the search engine you need.
What is Zoom?
Zoom is a software package that creates a search engine for your website, intranet, or DVD. It provides fast and powerful full-text searching by indexing your website in advance with an user friendly desktop application that allows you to configure and index your site, from the convenience of your Windows computer.
Simple. Powerful. Flexible.
Packed with features
Zoom uses its propriety-ranking algorithm to return results based on relevancy, and I have to confess that its scoring system surprised me. I compared the order of results as returned by Zoom against that of Google custom search for the test site that I indexed, and they're ranked pretty well in the same order. Whatever secret sauce they've cooked into their application, Zoom did an excellent job of addressing relevancy where many competitors failed.
Essential web admin tools
Besides helping your visitors find what they're looking for, Zoom also provides features which are crucial to every web admin such as Broken Link Detection, Graphical Statistic Reports, and Google™ and Yahoo™ Sitemap Generator.
