When it comes to indexing pages on The Web or just a website, no one or nothing can beat Google’s mighty system of crawling and indexing pages on the Web. Most Blogger Templates have custom search boxes in them, which are quite incapable of delivering the most appropriate results. These search boxes are just limited to their ability of searching matching words of your blog.
Fortunately, Google has also found the best solution to this problem. Google has created Google Custom Search Engines (CSE) which is awfully efficient in delivering the most relevant search results to the visitor. This increases the number of impressions and page views because your readers are kept busy in reading more and more. And the amazing thing is that you can add your AdSense Ads to your Google Custom Search Engine, which will increase your revenue for every click made on the search results. You can see a live demo of this search box on the sidebar of this blog. So let’s create and install a beautiful Google Search box for your blog.
How To Create a Custom Google Search Engine?
