Hi - I added a google search site widget to my page and nothing is happening. I don't see where I configure it. I can double click on the box and it comes up and the Get Widget option is displayed. Strange - what am I missing here?

Hi MR,

The widget doesn't appear to display in the site builder but when your site is published it will appear on the page.

I believe there is no options that can be changed for this widget.

Hope this helps,

John

Hi John - I published it and now it appears to be giving me google search results and not search results for my site.

Thanks for the assistance but it's still not working. I think I will find an alternative.

Hi MR,

Would you mind sharing your domain with us so that we can test this on our end? If you have embed the Google Site search, it should only be showing results from your website. Please note that Google does add a few advertisements to the top of the result page, however, the actual search results will be presented below that.

Looking forward to assisting you with this!
