Have you ever wanted to find an article you once read? You know:
1. The site it is on
2. The subject matter
3. You might even remember part of the title
You go to the site and groan, because you do not remember when it was written and the site doesn’t have a search feature. You click on the tag you would put the article under but guess what? It’s not there. You think about Googling it, but you decide in your frustrated state you aren’t that interested. You go on with your day. If you’re a writer, you link to another article.
Content management systems for the most part makes it very easy to add a search to your site. You tell me, if you don’t have one, why?
