What is a website search?

It is a function that enables users to search within a website that they have visited. At present, these searches are normally performed using Google or Yahoo. However, website searches are required not only for user navigation but have also become an essential tool due to the increase in the number of pages on corporate websites. A search of relevant pages can be performed when the user inputs a keyword in a website search window.
