Is there a way for Google's Custom Search engine to show it's results on a page on your website?

On a custom page which you put on your server, so you can still display ads and links to pages in your site together with the search results?

  • Have you read the documentation / manual?

You can host the results from a CSE as an iframe on your site:


Or you can use Bing, which has an XML api and doesn't charge for an unbranded search as google does.


do something like this - This may not work as is, but play around with it till it does

<form action="http://www.google.com/search" method="get" onSubmit="googleSearch(this)">
    <input name="XXX"  type="text"  value="SEARCH ..." >
    <input type="submit" >

function googleSearch(thisG){
