Searching Google...

How to have a web search box on your site... by GUJUm0deL
Posted: 27 Mar 02

Many times people need a web search on their site (not a site-search, but a search engine for Google, Yahoo, Excite, etc...)
  Well, this little script does a search for Google, and  opens the results in a new window...
  Pretty neat huh??


function googleSearch() {
  if (document.doingasearch.searchbox.value!="") {    
      window.open("http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q="; + document.doingasearch.searchbox.value) ;        
  else {
    alert("Please enter something to search.")

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<FORM name="doingasearch" id="doingasearch">
  <INPUT name=searchbox type=text size=20>
  <INPUT type="button" value="Search" onclick="return googleSearch();">
