Omega Search

Site Search for your Website

For an ad-free search within a website, Omega from echonet is a tool that helps the operators of a digital presence, online portal or website to have their own internal search. The search engine essentially behaves in the same way as many other search engines on the Internet, but of course it only searches the correspondingly integrated website. The search results can be adapted to the visual style of the page, so the results also look as if they have been generated within the website.

Search engine with full text indexing

Description

With the echonet Omega search, an internal full-text search can be carried out via your online presence. The search engine indexes your website and the texts it contains according to precise specifications. The search can be used for both text content and images on the page. The search engine is operated and maintained by echonet. The use of the echonet Omega search engine is GDPR-compliant and of course free of third-party advertising or third-party content.

Fair use policy: Search queries over 10 times the number of indexable pages are included in the resulting traffic.

How it works

The echonet Omega full-text search system is based on an indexing system on an external server at echonet. A bot is installed there that indexes the online presence, also using the corresponding information in the META data, and regularly searches the content of the website. By connecting the Omega search, search queries on the website are sent to the server, which then responds via an interface to the web server. The search results are then displayed within the page and also with the corresponding layout and design of the website. Text and image searches are available.

Why echonet Cloud-Services?

Cloud-Services and echonet Products

In contrast to echonet products, echonet cloud services are created on the basis of external software. echonet products are developed in-house in our digital workshop. The following applies to the cloud services: echonet creates the interfaces and, for some services, also the technical operation / server (e.g. website statistics).

You could therefore also bypass echonet's cloud services and take care of them yourself, as you have the same option of procuring this software as we do. You can operate your own servers for this and also have corresponding interfaces developed - also by us. If you use a lot of software, it may be cheaper for you to use your own service or server - especially if you have your own in-house IT department.

This can be attractive in terms of costs, but you will create a number of construction sites around your website that you will then have to manage yourself.

Questions and Answers ...

Can I operate these services myself or have them connected to the web system?

Yes, you can. All of echonet's cloud services are not a "secret", they are officially available services, software or API interfaces.

What advantages do I have if I do this myself without echonet?

If you have a very high consumption, this can be financially cheaper for you - at least for normal operation.

What are the disadvantages of doing it myself and not using echonet cloud services?

If the software needs an update, the interface is changed by the company or organization providing it or the capacities (storage space...) are exhausted, you will also have to take care of this yourself. You can also commission us to do this, but such adjustments can quickly take a person-day and thus completely destroy the cost advantage.

GDPR conformity and credit carryover per year

Calculation over the calendar year ...

All "Features as a Service" (FaaS) have a monthly fee that is based on consumption. Additional costs incurred if consumption is exceeded are only charged if consumption was too high over the entire calendar year. So if you consume less in April and more in July, you take the credit from April with you. Only if the total for the year is too high will you be charged subsequently.

Works without consent ...

All echonet cloud services are designed in such a way that - as long as they are services on the website itself - they also work without consent in accordance with the GDPR. This means that the content or statistics created with them are also comprehensive and not only available to those users of the website who have explicitly consented. This creates statistics with real numbers, but it also creates content that is seen by everyone.

Such services are available free of charge ...?

Many of echonet's cloud services would theoretically also be available free of charge on the Internet. If you expect a service to have no one-off or ongoing costs, then the service naturally has a different business model. Ideally, the service is financed with the help of donations, such as the map service "Open Streetmap", the messaging service "Signal" or the online encyclopedia "Wikipedia".

In most cases of free services, however, there is a "different form of payment", because ultimately it is a matter of paying with data that is used for marketing and advertising. However, this is precisely where the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) often comes into play. This often means that such a service can only be used if the users in Europe actively consent to this service.

*) free of charge [free|of|charge, english, adj.] On the Internet, this is very often a technical term for services that are not paid for with money but with privacy and data.
