PHP Search Engine & Crawler

Advanced PHP Search engine, with Full-Text search queries in BOOLEAN mode, and cURL page crawler.


  • MySQL Full-Text search engine
  • PHP Crawler (only for domains and subdomains)
  • Various filters (including “exact match”)
  • Option to order the results by relevancy
  • Adsense ready, 3 ad units
  • Top 15 most searched keywords
  • Cross Browser compatible
  • Includes a database with +40.000 domain crawled (most of them are Romanian domains)
  • Massive Crawling (insert an array with domain names and they will be crawled)

  • (Note: it crawls only the first page, aka index page, of the websites, altough the script contains a massive crawling php ready to use for multiple sites. The domains which don’t have a Title and Description or Body content aren’t indexed.)

    Requierments: PHP 5+, MySQLi and cURL library (it does use file_get_contents in case you don’t have cURL library).
