Create your own Google Search .. new tool from Google

People who say that they cannot find anything anymore on Google search can now stop complaining, because Google is doing something about it. The company has announced Google Custom Search tools. Co-op allows a user to create and launch a search engine with just a few specific websites included. Searches will return results from only that website.

Users have a number of options to customize the search engine: choosing which pages they want to include in their index, how the content should be prioritized, whether others can contribute to the index, and what the search results page will look like.

Since the search can be hosted on either Google servers or your own, you can actually customize the look and feel of the search page, and embed Google Adsense and other advertisements

For bloggers, using Google Co-op may be a better choice than the built in search feature. A search engine can be created that searches just a single site, and Google search is generally better than search features included with blog software, and with the addition of Adsense this will generate a separate income stream as well.
