Custom your Custom Search Engine with Google Co-op

Custom Search Engine

Linked Custom Search Engines

In a Linked CSE the specification of the search engine is hosted on your website. In a Google Stored CSE the specification is stored at Google.

  • You can easily convert your data to a Custom Search Engine.
  • You can automatically generate any number of CSEs, each possibly tuned to a particular user, the particular page, time of day, etc. In fact, you can generate CSEs on demand, in response to a users query or a page on your site that your user is searching from. We provide several interesting tools, such as creating a Linked CSE out of the links on a page, that you can use.
  • You can easily update your Linked CSE definitions without pushing data to Google.
  • There are no global, per user annotation limits.
