I've run into this problem before when designing another website and the easiest solution was to employ a Google Custom Search (and yes, it works on subdomains.)
So right now, my plan is to employ a similar technique on my comic site.
The first step would be to create text files for each comic, creating invisible keywords by using black text up against my black background.
Second, I'll put a customized version of this code somewhere on my site:
- Code: Select all
<form method="get" action="http://www.google.com/search">
<input type="text" name="q" size="31"
maxlength="255" value="" />
<input type="submit" value="Search This Comic" />
<input type="hidden" name="domains" value="COMICNAME.comicgenesis.com" />
<input style="visibility:hidden" type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="COMICNAME.comicgenesis.com" checked="checked" />
Once I have waited for Google to index my site again, it should work fairly smoothly.
Am I missing anything? Does anyone have a more elegant solution for this?
(Moved from Help Center as this seems a more appropriate venue.)
