You can add a Google **site** search box by using the Widgetbox Gallery:

This widget will search your site's pages.

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, in the search box type "Site Search".
3. Then click on "Search Your Site With Google". This will search just your site, but there will be a Google icon on the widget and possible ads.
4. Add your domain to "Site to Search"
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

You can also use a free site search service called siteLevel:

This will search the pages of your site.

1. Go to siteLevel.com.
2. Fill in your email address and domain name.
3. Click Sign Up
4. Hightlight the Javascript Search Box option and copy it
5. In the Site Builder drag and drop an HTML Widget onto your page. The HTML Widget is located on the content sidebar and is a little blue circle.
6. Paste the code into the dialog box and click "OK".
7. Save and preview your page to view the search box.

You can also add a search box to search Google:

This widget will search Google.

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, click on "Google Search"
3. When the dialog box opens click on the green "Get Widget" button
4. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Please let me know if you need any clarification.
