  • Why not create a Google search engine and add it to your website? You can also use yours (the one on your website) and show the results as Google and that only take the data of your Web, that is, you search in your Web, you have it here: https://cse.google.com/cse/ you need a Google account and go, just follow the steps. Here you can see an example of how a search engine works for your web, just click on the magnifying glass next to the main menu and look for what you want, you will see that the results it shows are according to Google but only on the site in question . A greeting.

Here is how to** Add a custom search engine** to your site

Click the search engine you want on the Custom Search home page.
Click Setup, and then click the Basics tab.
Click Get code in the Details section.
Copy the code and paste it into your page's HTML source code in the section where you want the Custom Search element to appear.

In case you have choosen the two column or two page layout option, you'll need to copy and paste two snippets of code:
Paste the first code snippet where you want the search box to appear.
Paste the second code snippet where you want the search results to appear.
