Hi everyone,

I posted this question a week ago.  I had three people request a summary of responses, but no responses with information on intranet search engines .

We are still working on this decision, so it is not too late to reply.

Subject: Best search engine for intranets?

Good morning,


I'm on the team that is redeveloping our hospital's intranet (internal site). We had intended to use Google Mini as the search engine for the new site, but it is no longer being sold, and the Google Enterprise Search Appliance is a bit rich for us. 


I would be interested to hear from you what search engine you use for your intranet (other than Google or Sharepoint) and any strengths or weaknesses you would care to pass along.
