    UPDATE 2: In case someone is interested, we have a developer Wiki article which has some instructions and sample code to integrate Gold with Google search.

    -—————————————————
    UPDATE 1: We are still looking into this request. Unfortunately, it didn’t make it into the last version. It will require significant changes to the search queries which are already very complex.

    It is still under consideration though. Hopefully, it will be possible. If we had more votes, that might influence the decision to add it.

    While google search is a great solution, it does cost money. Per year pricing is as follows:

    queries/year cost
    -------------------------
    20,000 $100
    50,000 $250
    150,000 $750
    500,000 $2,000

    20,000 queries is about 55/day, 500,000 queries is about 1400/day.

    This is a great technical solution but it can be pricey. The upshot is you guys really need to implement a good site-wide search solution.

    While this may have challenges to implement, think of what a search box on a website represents. There is a tacit assumption that when you use a search box, you are searching the whole site. If I'm a customer, I might want to search refund policy or any number of non-product questions which are clearly not a product or category but is something vital to a customer.
