Google Blogging Tip # 70: Setting Up Your Blog Gadgets, Part 27 - Adding Google Website Search

Adding 'Google Internet Search from within your Blog.'
Reference: Google Blogging Tip # 51: Setting Up Your Google Blog Gadgets, Part 21 - This Gadget allows people to SEARCH items within your Blog.

Q) I loaded the Google Blog / Site Search Gadget you provided on Tip # 51 but it only searches what's within my own Blog. Can you provide me with the code so people can SEARCH the Internet from within my Blog?

A) Yes, but I don't recommend this Gadget because anything that departs a viewer (visitor) from your Blog distracts them from your Blog, i.e. they probably wont return.
Note: This will appear on your Google Sidebar (column).

1. Sign-in to your Google Blog.
2. Select 'Layouts.'
3. Select 'Gadgets.'
4. Select 'JavaScript / HTML.'
5. Copy and Paste the code from The Blog Guy's Web Page.
6. Save, View Blog, go back make changes as desired.
7. Move the Gadget to the desired location.

Hello again...
I just made a NEW posting to one of my Blogs, What Type of Religious Light Bulb Are You?, and see that Google has changed the Posting format.
I think it sucks.
I do not see a spellchecker and that was one of the best features.
It was also hard to add a picture with text.
Also, I don't see a place to add a movie....
Are you going to give us new instructions and tips on how to use this format?
