Though crude, you *might* try a sort of index file with the uris of your content. For example,

title of page1#keyword1,keyword2,keywordn#uri
title of page2#keyword1,keyword2,keywordn#uri
title of page3#keyword1,keyword2,keywordn#uri

You could parse this file, if any keywords match, post the links as results

<a href="url">title of page</a>

You'd need server side scripting support of some kind - php, perl, asp, etc.

You could *probably* also do the something similar using client side scripting like javascript, but load the index file into a hidden frame or something. When you get a search, parse the frame contents to see if any hits came up.

Client side scripting will not help you to create a search engine.
So use Bing Site search Widget:
