By default, all the templates in blogger come in within in search boxes. You can ask me why we need to add customer Google search box. The reason is default search boxes are not as powerful as the custom search engine. I recommend using Google custom search due to its flexibility. If you are using Adsense on your blog, then custom google search will increase your earnings. Now, let us see how to add custom Google search in Blogger.
How to add custom Google search
Custom Google search is one of the products from Google like YouTube and Gmail. If you have a website which has lots of information, it will be difficult to navigate. Instead, you can use a search option. By adding a custom search, users can type the query which they want to search for that particular website. This search box gives the path they want.
If you have Adsense account, adding custom search engine will actually increase your revenue. Custom Google search allows you to monetize the result pages. You will get paid for the clicks on the ads on the result page.
