Secret Agents With YaCy RSS Feed Reader

Abstract: With YaCy you can create secret search agents which do searches for you automatically within your own search index. That index can be filled automatically with rss feeds and a search within your own index, sorted by date can be retrieved using rss feeds again. In combination with an rss feed reader, reading search results from your own index, you get secret search agents which are fully private because the search requests never leave your own computer.

Easy Web Crawl

Abstract: A tutorial about the YaCy 'Site Crawler' which is the easiest way to put a lot of documents from the Web into your own web search index. If you start a 'Site Crawling' then YaCy loads all web pages from a single domain to the YaCy search index. Use this, if you think that a specific domain is missing in your search result. If you are running in peer-to-peer mode (which is the default) then all web pages indexed with you crawler will be available to the other YaCy index in the 'freeworld' search network.
