  1. I always thought I didn’t have enough control on my custom search. I’m glad they are pushing forward with this

  2. Very glad to hear this and we will be having more control.

  3. I just started using Adsense for search last week and thought it could use some improvements. I’m glad they are doing this!

  4. Sounds great, Darren. I just wish the look were a bit more customizable so it could fit in all blogs. More control is always good though, hopefully it increases earnings!

  5. This is great news!!!!

  6. Darren, should bloggers incorporate this feature in the blog ? will problogger incorporate this feature ??

  7. This is wonderful news. Perhaps a post on how to take advantage of this new development would be a good one.

    Oops, I forgot about the Skribit widget on your sidebar. :P

  8. I always wondered why Google didn’t merge the two so Adsense search could be a bit more customized. Thanks for heads up!

    good new format

    it great news for target search

  10. I just hooked up with it for one of my sites, but I couldn’t figure out how to set it up so people could either search just my site or the internet in general. There used to be that option; oh well,…

  11. I’ve always had problems implementing a seach bar on my site, as I had mininal control over it and there weren’t many features. I’m glad they have updated they’re search bar, this is definitaly a step foward for AdSense for search.

  12. Why are there no other ad publisher programs out there that can even come close to adsense?

  13. Hi Darren,

    You are truly a veteran in this field. You always have fresh and relevant content in your posts. I personally take you as my esteemed Blog Mentor.

    Keep on the good work! Hope to ‘graduate’ soon and get the ‘coveted Blog Degree’ !


  14. Thanks for this info. I havent yet implement Adsense for search but does it pay as well as Asense for content? And would it detract users from clicking you Adsense for content?
