Major issues in intranet-scale search:

The open politics search engine is an attempt to make it much simpler to deal with the above in a uniform way - to grow an open politics web obeying standards that ensure a reasonable degree of accessibility and protection. This will develop under the tutelage of top researchers who assist in spreading open politics itself.

The search of a very large corpus such as the GFDL corpus, Common Content or the World Wide Web as a whole (which includes both), or the Library of Congress as google seeks to permit, is more complex as the conventions are less controlled. These are dealt with as "research", using the skills of the "researcher". See those separate articles.
