I would like to use a script where the visitor can search a selected searchengine from a dropdown box. For example Google, Google Images, Google Video, Yahoo, Youtube, Videosearch, etc.
If it would be possible, but i don't think it is, it would be very cool if the searchresults appear on my own site instead of a popuplink trough the selected searchengine. Ofcoarse the logo of the selected engine will be added to that page.
i dont know exactly they do it , but you can make query for google and then its will reply the data as xml , then you read the xml file and display in the way you like , same as news feed ..
i guess you need to see this http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxsearch/signup.html
I managed to create a script that uses Google but is displayed on my own website.
However, perhaps i want things easier. Just a simple searchfield and a dropdownfield containing Google, Google News, Google Video, Yahoo, Wikipedia, and Youtube. Doesn't matter if the visitor gets forwarded to the real serps.
I understand, but to be honoust, iam not a programmer, perhaps you could point me in to the right direction, or perhaps there already is a certain script like this (i know a lot of sites use somthing simular, but ofcoarse when you're looking for it, you can't find it).
