Google has launched a program offering small businesses hosted site search with its Google Custom Search Business Edition, an enhanced version of its Custom Search Engine (CSE) service launched last fall.
The Business Edition allows site owners to turn off AdWords ads that normally appear in free CSE search results. Site owners can also create a custom user interface and import search results via an XML feed, and Google branding is optional. It also comes with dedicated e-mail and phone support.
Custom Search Business Edition starts at $100 a year for searching up to 5,000 pages, and extends to $500/year for up to 50,000 pages.
