So two questions for all listers:

Which search engine should I use?

Maybe this isn't a popular point of view, but I'd say: none of them.

If someone wants to search your site, or any other specific site on
the internet, they should use whatever search engine they prefer,

If every site has its own link to the site-author's preferred search
engine then every user has to lean how to use lots of search engines.

It's far better that users find a search engine they like, and learn
to use it properly.

I also don't use "search toolbars" or the very limited search that
applies if you mistype info in a browser's address field.  Instead,
I've a browser toolbar icon that, when clicked, opens the advanced
search page for the search engine I like.
