Global site search of consumerfinance.gov is implemented using Search.gov.
The search box in the site header is linked to this global site search.
Searches using this method return results at the
subdomain. This subdomain is hosted by Search.gov.
We maintain several independent search indexes on Search.gov for various purposes:
cfpb: English-language search for www.consumerfinance.gov.
cfpb_es: Spanish-language search for pages under www.consumerfinance.gov/es/.
cfpb_beta: An alternate English-language search index for beta.consumerfinance.gov.
cfpb_beta_es: An alternate Spanish-language search index for beta.consumerfinance.gov/es/.
These search indexes are hardcoded depending on the page being viewed.
Configuration of site search on Search.gov requires an approved login to its admin console. The Search.gov Help Manual documents the various configuration options used on our indexes, for example text-based "best bets" and our custom visual design.
