@karoh I am a little late to this question. But I have worked on a couple alternative solutions to google site search:

  1. Sitewide HubSpot Search
  2. Blog Only HubSpot Search

The first option is easiest to implement and it get's it's results from your sitemap. The second takes a little more time but it's a good option if you want a more typical blog search.

Hope this helps!

Hi @karoh, thanks for your post. The default dearch box used in our HubSpot Templates is a google search, and a google custom search engine is our best alternative recommenation. Personally, I'm not familiar with other options, and you'd likely need to do some research on your own. Is there a particular reason why you are not interested in using google?

Hi Stefen, 

 

The links in your post aren't working--are these plugins still around? If so, where do I find more info?

Thanks!

Hi Katjia, I recommend you check out Swiftype Site Search as an alternative to Google Site and Custom Search. To get started with Swiftype, you just enter your website’s address and Swiftype will index your site and create your search engine in real-time. The Swiftype UI is fully customizable and you can view search analytics and re-order results from a dashboard.
