Google Custom Search Engine

  • CSEs do not crawl the web; they search in Google’s index – in special ways defined in each CSE control panel
  • CSEs provide customized ways to search Google’s index to the end-user
  • CSEs “understand” advanced Google Boolean search syntax (operators such as AND OR etc)

Google CSE Advantages

  • Hide complex search syntax from end-user
  • Prevent Google from displaying Captchas
  • Provide the ability to sort the results by date
  • CSEs have additional search capabilities, unavailable in “regular” Google
  • CSEs have additional search operators!
