I am not an SEO expert but here are my suggestions.

There are a number of ways to optimize Google (or just about any public
search engine) results.

The very basic tool at disposal is robot.txt [1], which is a plain text
file search by every search engine in every web root and / or web folder.
In this file you can specify which search engines are allowed, while files
and folder to be index, their priority and change frequency etc. In
addition to that you force search engine to index specific urls only (by
using a sitemap file in xml format. [2]).

Secondly you can configure Apache (or whatever web server being used by the
website), to include specific HTTP headers, which inform both search engine
and client browsers about caching and content expiry [3], after which
search is forced to re-index the pages.

Thirdly you can use certain HTML meta tags on per page basis for defining
correct title, description etc. of the web page in question [4]. This will
improve results significantly.

Regarding search engine for website, if you are using any content manager
like joomla etc. then there are already plugins for search engine. OR you
can use Google's custom search engine [5].

Thank you.
