Why won't my custom search find anything on my site, www.Tonbridgesearch.com I've filled in details of each page in the properties, but it only brings up the main index page?

Hi Stuart,

It takes a long time for your site to be indexed by google and to show up in searches. Just be patient and wait for google to index your site. In the meantime you could speed the process up with a bit of SEO, here's a tutorial to help you optimize your site for search engines.

Hello Stuart,

For Google Custom Search Engine to work your site pages need to be indexed. I did try your search box and it brought up more returns than just the home page.

This is what I got for the search phrase "shopping":


Possibly I misunderstood your question?

No, both of you have been very helpful, think I've just got to wait until the rest of my site has been indexed then before more pages are found by the search, thanks. Stu
