There are a few different ways you can add Google search functionality to your website. Here are three options:

  1. Google Custom Search: Google provides a free tool called Google Custom Search that allows you to add a search box to your website that will search either the entire web or a specific set of sites that you choose. You can customize the look and feel of the search box and search results to match your website's design. To get started with Google Custom Search, visit the Google Custom Search page (https://programmablesearchengine.google.com/about/) and follow the instructions to create a search engine for your website.
  2. Google Site Search (Deprecated): Google Site Search used to be a paid service provided by Google that allowed you to add a Google-powered search box to your website that would search only your site. However, Google has since deprecated this service and replaced it with Google Custom Search.
  3. Google Search API: If you have some programming skills, you can use Google's Search API to build your own custom search functionality for your website. The Search API allows you to programmatically send search queries to Google and receive search results in a structured format that you can display on your website. To get started with the Search API, you'll need to create a Google API account and enable the Search API for your project.


Regardless of which method you choose, you will need to have a Google account to get started.

  6. On the next page, you will be provided with some code snippets that you can add to your website. There are different options available depending on the platform your website is built on (e.g. HTML, WordPress, etc.).
  7. Choose the appropriate code snippet and add it to your website's HTML code in the desired location. This will add the Google search box to your website.
  8. Save your changes and publish your website. The Google search box should now be visible and functioning on your website.


Remember to test your search functionality to ensure it is working as expected.
