No Results on results page

I followed the gsg - and added Search for BOSS on a page then the bindings on the results page. I get no results. What exacltly should I expect. Will I get results from any text on my site or is there more to this???
I have checked and double ckecked all form fields are correctly named. The results page loads but I have zero joy!.

This is my form - if this helps

<form id="searchform" name="form1" method="post" action="results.php">
<input type="image" class="searchButton" src="images/main/btn_search.gif" />
<label for="search"></label>
<input type="text" name="searchtxt" id="searchtxt" class="searchText"/>
</form>

Thanks

Search for BOSS uses the Yahoo search engine. For it to return any results, your site must first be indexed by Yahoo. If your site has not been indexed by the Yahoo search engines, there will be no results.

Okay

Thanks for that. So I guess there is no way to test this?

If I may , How do I set this up so that I can serach from every page in my site. The Results page requires you to select the form element from a particular page.
Can I create an include file that just contains the form and include this in every page - or is there another solution.
Thanks

you can copy the form onto your other pages. As long as the form elements are named the same, and the forms action is set to post to the results page, it will work.

You have to submit your site to the Yahoo search engine. When you submit your site, you can configure how often it is indexed.
