I'm looking for someone who is familiar with building a good search engine. We have all the necessary technology for it but would need a good algorithm to process results quickly and accurately. I want a search script/algorithm that has all the features of major search scripts like google, yahoo, etc. We have built a crawler using C++ and have put the results in SQL 2005. The problem is when we're crawling we are bringing back all of the webspam (sites with nothing but links to other sites) If this could be eliminated in the crawling stage that would be a help. But we also need to be able to bring back the best results possible when returning search quieries.
If you've already built something like this let me know so i can test it out.
