Google's Web Search vs. Your Site Search

Do you ever notice that when you generate HTML/JavaScript code for the Google Search Box and for Your Site Search that the little black dot always stays on the Google Web Search instead of Your Site Search?

Well, if you would like that little black dot to stay on your site instead of on the Web for your Google Search Box, I will explain how simple it is to change. Go to your HTML/Java Script code for the Google Search Box, scroll down until you see 'Search the Web'. Delete the the word 'checked' (shown in red in image below) that is in front of 'value' for searching the Web, now add the word 'checked' in front of your 'value'(shown in blue).

This way your visitors will search from within your site for their information and will also have the option to click on the Web for further searching if need be.

I have often wondered how to do this and while I was visiting one of MyBlogLog community members, I noticed that her Google Search box had the dot stay on her site for search. I wanted it to work that way for me too, so I wrote her a private message through MyBlogLog and she answered me right away. I want to give credit where credit is due, so I thank you for all your help and quick response to my question. I would also like to invite others to give her a visit at WEB 2.0 DIRECTORY: EXAMPLES AND USEFUL SITES.
