Active Search Engine Power Search technology offers you unlimited combinations when researching your search engine content.
Reports and logs:
· Because Active Search Engine is able to perform most tasks automatically, it keeps logs of its own activity so that the search engine administrator can review it at any time. Examples include reports of the keywords searched by users, confirmation emails sent and to whom they were sent, newsletters sent and much more.
Avoid duplicate links:
· Active Search Engine automatically checks for duplicate links both in manual and automatic mode saving the search engine administrator from this time consuming task.
Broken Link Checker:
· This useful function accessible from the Administration Area will automatically check for any links that have become broken (their web url address is no longer valid) allowing the search engine administrator to delete them with the click of a button or to review them individually.
Invalid Email Checker:
· It will automatically check for email addresses that are no longer valid. Note that there are two different instances for this application that you can access from Active Search Engine Administration Menu. One checks emails in your search engine links database while the other checks emails in your Mailing List database.
Mailing Lists and Power Mailer:
· There are many ways in which Active Search Engine builds your mailing list. As users subscribe for your newsletter, or opt-in when adding links or voting webs your mailing list will grow and Active Search Engine will automatically add thousands of email addresses to it without any effort on your part. Using Active Search Engine Power Mailer you can later on decide to send a personalized email or newsletter to the full mailing list or just to a selected group of link owners.
· Since Power Mailer is fully integrated with Power Search there are no limits when selecting the group of recipients for your mailings. From a few hundred to millions of email recipients, Power Mailer can be configured in personalized or bulk mode and is much faster than the typical desktop mailer since it runs on the web server and therefore does not use your desktop resources allowing you to concentrate on other tasks while Power Mailer is doing its job on the server computer.
Translate it to any language:
· All Active Search Engine text, messages, emails and content can be edited or fully translated to any language. All text is contained in a language file and template files that you can edit from the administration interface or using your favorite editor. At this time there are out of the box versions available in English and Spanish and the software supports extended characters for any other language.
Built-in Meta Tags that place you at the top:
· As a search engine owner you would like your own directory to rank well on other search engines to maximize web traffic and quickly increase your site popularity. As one of the market pioneers on web marketing and web promotion experts, Myrasoft team has noticed that most search engines out there lack the most basic meta tags themselves and therefore do not rank well on other search engines.
· Well, now with Active Search Engine things have changed and your search engine will not only be effectively listed on other internet search engines but the software includes pre-built meta tags and dynamically generated keywords specifically designed to rank at the top of major search engines. So expect to start receiving tons of targeted traffic according to your search engine content just from a few of the major search engines like Google alone.
· Active Search Engine is flexible and fully customizable. You can set it up as a completely automatic search engine without the need of any administrative intervention or as a manual directory, decide to set the voting system in automatic mode but the web site approval in manual mode or vice versa, it also allows you to easily change the search engine logo, user interface fonts, colors and templates, decide what options appear on the navigation menus, establish automatic filters for bad content or bad submissions, block access to certain users, limit the number of votes per user and per day, customize the order of the search results and rankings, configure how the mailing list is built, what search engine activity is saved to log files and much more! An amazing flexibility that you will appreciate as your search engine progresses and gains size and momentum.
Two Editions, Access and SQL:
· Active Search Engine comes in two different editions depending on the database you plan to use: Active Search Engine for Access (uses a MS-Access database -included with the software) and Active Search Engine for SQL (uses a SQL database -available on your server). For both versions all software functions and features are included so there is no difference in software functionality.
· The difference resides rather on the performance of Access versus SQL databases themselves. You can select one version or the other depending on the number of simultaneous users that you plan will be accessing your web site at any given time. While Microsoft Access and JET databases will perform well for medium sized sites when the number of simultaneous users starts to get large SQL will perform much better.
· Note that you can upgrade from the Access to the SQL version at any time, however if you already own a high traffic site we recommend to start directly with the SQL version. The SQL version will support sites with millions of visitors without slowing down the search engine speed.
