The only work I see for DJ is making one link. That is only if he wants to facilitate someone at this site knowing about the search site.
Come to think of it, DJ doesn't have to do anything at all. Nothing. Nada. Other than allow the search engine to build the index. That doesn't even involve him. Its a passive thing.
May need some cooperation on the copyright. Seems there may be some confusion later on about who owns these posts. Do I have any control over what happens to my words, my intellectual property rights, when they are posted here?
Anyway the initial indexing may appear as a denial of service attack and, at least in politeness, should not be done without some prior arrangement. If the index only pointed back at DJ's site, I'm not sure what the copyright situation is.
Sorry if the last part has already been covered. It didn't turn up in my search.
