News and Insights from the Digital and Search Marketing Industries

Google site search is on the way out. Now what?

For those who aren't familiar, Google Site Search is like Google for your own site; it offers an internal search feature and Google will be sunsetting this product as of April 1, 2017. This was a widely adopted product and it's left brands scrambling for a replacement, but the good news is there are worthy replacements.

Adobe believes that while there alternatives to Google Site Search, one that was not mentioned in the article is Adobe Search and Promote, which offers a robust internal search offering complete with integrations into Adobe Experience Manager and the Marketing Cloud.

Enter "Hygiene Optimization". This is centered on the idea that successive small improvements will provide long-term improvement for the site.

Adobe SEO has always maintained that audits be conducted with modesty - that their intent not be to find the smoking gun, but to make a site least imperfect through small improvements. This directly aligns with the Japanese principle of "kaizen" which speaks to continuous improvement over time.
