If you notice, almost all blog in the Internet is equipped with search engine. For me, search engine is very useful when your blog have much contents available to be read by visitors. With search engine, your blog visitors can save a lot of time to find the contents they want to read. They can just type the related keywords on its text box, then click search button to let search engine find the wanted contents for them.
I personally encourage you to create the search engine especially for the niche blog, eg: computer tips and tricks etc. It is because, the blog visitors who visit the niche blog usually have an intention to read the specific topics offered by the blog owner. So, it is worth for the blog owner to put the search engine on their blog in order to ease the visitor to retrieve the specific contents they want.
