Free Search Bar for your Website


As a website owner, you may decide that you wish to add a Google Search Bar to your website. The Google Search Bar (as illustrated below) is actually part of the Google AdSense programme and now you can make money by displaying Google's Search Bar advertising on your own website.

Search this Website with Google:


This should not be confused with the Google Toolbar, which is a free add-on tool for Microsoft Internet Explorer. By the way, the toolbar is also available as a free download for the Firefox browser.

What is Google AdSense?

You can think of 'AdSense' as a new business opportunity. It's completely free. Yes, it's an opportunity for you to make money from your own website. The advertising programme is made up of 2 key elements:

  • AdSense for Search
  • AdSense for Content

    AdSense for Search

    This feature will allow you to add a Google Search Bar to your own website. So, this means that visitors to your website can search for information contained in your site.

    And what's more, when a search is performed, the search engine returns Google AdSense advertising in the search results. It's fully automatic and the advertisements are directly related to the search query.

    Now here's the good bit! When people click your Search Ads (these are the sponsored ads), you are paid money. It's a pay per click scheme, so you can make money as people use your search bar.

    Don't worry if you are not using search technology directly within your site. Once again, it's all taken care of. For example, it will work perfectly well on a simple HTML site.

    AdSense for Content

    For more details, please see: Google AdSense.
