Search

NexDir contains a built-in search engine and also is search engine friendly.


Built-in Search Engine

The NexDir search engine supports both basic and advanced search, and also supports local/global scoping.



 

Search Engine Friendly

NexDir makes it easy to optimize your site for search engine indexing, and unlike some content management systems, is search engine friendly.

  • Automatic generation of page title tags
  • Automatic generation of meta-description tags
  • Automatic generation of meta-keyword tags
  • Entire site is navigable in a heirarchical fashion via visible text links


 

Shattering a Myth

Some people claim that getting good search engine placement is difficult when using a dynamic page generation CMS. Proof otherwise is in the pudding. Here are typical search results for some common broad searches of this area. Note that none of these sites have undergone "search engine optimization" (SEO), other than just common sense use of titles, text, and keyword lists.
