- Invite friends and colleagues to collaborate and contribute to your search engine, enhancing its usefulness to your community.
- Provide your own search refinements within results pages so it’s easier for your users to find the information they’re looking for.
- Easily add more sites to your search engine’s index as you surf the web.
