Burlington, Massachusetts – (The Hosting News) – February 18, 2009 – Web hosting services firm, FatCow, will provide customers the ability to incorporate Google Custom Search technologies into web sites, directly from the hosting control panel.
Mitch Haber, Vice President of Product Management at FatCow remarked, ”FatCow is among the first hosts to integrate Google Custom Search. Our customers were asking for a simple way to help their site visitors find what they were looking for. Not only is Google Custom Search the best customizable search engine available, it’s quick and easy to implement, and is free with any FatCow account.”
In addition to this free service, customers also have the option to upgrade to Google Site Search for enhanced controls over branding, presentation and indexing with On-Demand Indexing.
High quality site search has been shown to improve user experience, increase user engagement and frequently leads to higher conversions on Web sites. Incorporating Google Custom Search into FatCow’s hosting platform allows customers to manage all their web site services through a single interface, simplifying the process of building and optimizing a Web site, and saving Webmasters time, so they can focus on user needs rather than Web site maintenance.
Rajat Mukherjee, Group Product Manager for Google Custom Search noted, ”Our goal at Google is to engineer ease and simplicity across the board, from the user who is searching, to the Webmaster who is building. Having Google Custom Search and Google Site Search integrated into FatCow is a tremendous leap forward in providing more Webmasters access to Google search technologies, and improving user experience on the web.”

The ability to add a customized site-search box that enables visitors to search the customer site, a group of select sites, or the Internet.
