How to integrate google custom search to your website?:Google custom search is the best search tool which you can integrate to your website. If you are using any CMS(wordpress, joomla etc.,) softwares for your blog/site , then lot of ready-made plugins are exist. One important drawback with google custom search is it searches only from the google indexed pages.
