I am trying to get an API that I can use to do searches on my own site.
I make a new site search, then it is listed on a page with "custom search" in the heading. This is really confusing.
I just want an API that I can use to search my site. I would prefer json to xml as the results. And if this service is offered by someone other than Google, that is fine too.
The ones that I create at Google want me to embed a premade search box into my site. I do not want that, I want an API that I can call from PHP or JS.
How can I get this?
