I have been using Google to search information in SAP websites. For example: To search for “UWL configuration for GP”, I enter “UWL Configuration for GP site:sap.com”.
Though SDN search brings all the results, Google search is faster due to their advanced indexing and caching mechanism. (I do not think any one would dispute that). I put the search term”UWL Configuration for GP” in SDN, and it took 15-16 seconds to display the results. (This could vary based on your location, connectivity and speed of your internet connection). But Google took 5 seconds to search and display the results.
So why not take advantage of Google search in SDN by providing another option to search using Google? .Google provides “Google AJAX Search API” to enable search websites . The only key difference is that Google search does not bring results from SAP Notes.
