New Search Engine on kumc.edu

A new version of the search engine on www.kumc.edu was released today. We replaced the Google mini search appliance for a hosted Google index of our site. Among the improvements:
  • Faster search results
  • Uses the latest Google search algorithms to provide the most relevant results
  • Thumbnail photos of the page appear next to results
  • One search also brings results from the online phone directory in the righthand column
We're continuing to fine tune the filters, synonyms, and keyword matches. Please contact Jameson Watkins at jwatkins@kumc.edu if you find any odd results.
