#29: Google Search for Your Site

Integrating search on a website can be an incredibly complex subject far beyond my web development skills. Fortunately, Google offers a service called "Custom Search Engine" which you can integrate right into your own site. This leverages Googles awesome search power, and it can all happen directly on your own website!

    It gives an error,it may depend by the “target page”(filled in the code given by google)
    Maybe is better to re-make directly from google’s cse
    Google CSE(shortened by my urlshortener)
    Good job

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

We have a pretty good* newsletter.
