[prMac.com] Raleigh, North Carolina - NimbleHost is pleased to announce the release of RapidSearch Pro 2, a major upgrade to the professional search plugin for RapidWeaver, the popular web design software for Mac OS X. Version 2 brings support for multiple site map files, search statistics, more intelligent search indexing, and a complete redesign to the online management console.
Research has shown that how fast a website loads affects whether a visitor will continue to view that website or go elsewhere, and even impacts whether that person will visit the site again. This concept can also be applied to how quickly it takes someone to find what they are looking for on a website, which is why site search is an integral part of many websites today.
RapidSearch Pro 2 provides fact, accurate and up-to-date search to any RapidWeaver website, without relying on third party services. The intuitive online management console allows users to easily add multiple site map files, which can then be used to create an custom search index built specifically for that website. Built-in search statistics allow site owners to see what search terms their visitors are looking for, which gives them insight into the best way of optimizing their website to meet their visitors' needs.
* Fast, accurate, up-to-date search results returned in real time

* Support for multiple site map files
* Built-in search statistics
* Intelligent search index creation, using page-specific strategies to determine the most relevant content

The design interface in RapidWeaver provides users with multiple settings for customizing how the search form looks on their website. Advanced options give power users the ability to move the search form anywhere on the page, or to stylize the search form with their own custom CSS code.
"Our goal with RapidSearch Pro 2 was to give users complete control over how search works on their site," stated company CEO, Jonathan Head. "They no longer have to wait for a third party service to index their site, or worry about outdated search results being shown to their visitors."
