Build a proprietary search module for HubSpot blog page

The existing Google search module is nice, but it doesn't keep the user on the blog page, doesn't open in a new window and shows ads and paid listings (if you don't have a custom search plan with Google). It is a bit distracting.

It would be great if HubSpot could develop a search that only will search within the posted blog articles and the result listings would turn up on the blog page. This seems much more user friendly and engaging.

HubSpot really needs to have a proprietary search module. Afterall, aren't you all about SEO? How does having competitors and ads listed in search results from Google help our SEO? This should be a top priority! We eagerly await the release of this funcitonality. Thanks!

I agree with @VictoriaGumaer & @Lynn.  Hubspot should have a native search feature built into the COS. This is a must have.

How come only 14 likes on this subject? This is a huge issue, esp. since Google is ending Site Search in April 2018

This needs to be for the COS, not just the blog feature - how can we direct our customers to google on our own site and pull results for our competition....seems counterintuitive.

This is very much needed. How can our visitors search our blog for old articles without this? The Google solution works, but it's not at all a good solution. Like many others, I won't use it because the negatives outweigh the positives.

Please provide a good Search module for HubSpot COS.

Agreed.  Being new to HubSpot I have to admit my surprise to find out that this isn't a default option already.  If I could figure out how to up vote this issue I would!

HubSpot, could you also support the Search tool by providing analytics on what people search for when they come to our website? Thanks!
