indexing service companion 3.1

The Indexing Service Companion is a web crawler utility that extends the functionality of Microsoft's Indexing Service* so that it is able to index and search content from remote websites hosted on any web server (including Unix/Linux/Apache), and also from ODBC databases. As such it can be used as a low cost alternative to Microsoft's Site Server 3.0 Search or the search facilities of SharePoint Portal Server.

* Enables Index Server (Windows NT 4.0 Server) or Indexing Service (Windows 2000 Server and above) to allow searching of any web server or ODBC compliant database.

* Integrated web robot extracts content from websites. Includes support for robots.txt files and robots meta tags. Robot can negotiate sites using HTML Frames.

* Optional ability to retrieve URLs containing QueryStrings.

* Ability to retrieve individual URLs from servers.

* Ability to specify crawl depth of web robot.

* Support for crawling websites using ASP/ASP.NET sessions.

* Supports crawling of secure websites using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

* Supports crawling of websites secured using HTTP Basic Authentication.

* Supports crawling of Microsoft IIS websites secured using NTLM (Windows integrated security).

* Ability to retrieve binary files from servers, including Adobe Acrobat PDF, Microsoft Office documents and even images.

* Ability to save content from web crawls to any ODBC database (i.e. Access or SQL Server), which can potentially allow you to create a website search facility using SQL (SQL Server full-text catalog searching recommended).

* Automatic uploading of saved content to a FTP site.

* Ability to save content from web crawls into an XML file.

* Support for full or incremental project updates of both web and database content, meaning that Indexing Service only has to re-index content that has changed.

* Configuration of the Indexing Service Companion is through the editing of a plain text configuration file.

* Indexing Service Companion can be run from the command line, and scheduled using the Windows Task Scheduler.

* Full reporting of activity to an external plain text log file.

* Flexible output options mean that administrative access to Index Server is not necessarily required.

* Facility for creating a site summary page that can be used to optimise sites for search engines, by showing what keywords are used on a site, the tags used by each page etc. The site summary page shows:

o The top 40 most used keywords listed in the keywords meta tags in all of the pages crawled.

o The body of the summary page contains the following from the pages encountered in the web crawl:

- A list of page titles.

- A list of page headings (H1 to H3 inclusive).

- A list of bold (and strong) text.

- A list of external hyperlinks in the site.

- A list of italicised text.

- A selection of relevant paragraph text. Paragraphs are assumed to be relevant if they contain one or more of the 40 most frequently used keywords.

- A list of page description meta tags.

- A list of page keywords.

- A list of page description meta tags hyperlinked back to the URL from which each description was extracted.

- A list of page keywords hyperlinked back to the URL from which it was extracted.

* Fully documented VBScript examples show how to make use of the Indexing Service Companion in ASP pages.

* Includes sample code showing how to use the Indexing Service Companion with Index Server/Indexing Service on ASP.NET (C# and VB.NET). Display your search results in DataGrids, Repeaters and other Web Form components.
