Add Google to your Site

You can add Google searching to your UWM site! You have two options when inserting Google search technology into your web site. You can:

1. Search the full index
2. Search a subset of the full index (known as a "collection")

Please read further to learn more about the two options and see which is right for your web site. If you have any questions, please e-mail

Searching the full index
If you would like to add a search box to your web site that will search all web content found in Google's index of, simply copy the HTML code below and paste it into your web page.

<form action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" value="search" name="action1">
Search: <input type="text" name="query" size="20" maxlength="100"><br>
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Search">

Please note that this code will insert a search box that will search all of the content in the search index - not just the content in a particular web directory. If you would like to insert a search box that will search only your site's content, please read about search collections below.

Searching a subset of the index (Search Collections)
Searching a subset of content contained within the main search index is known as a "search collection." Search collections are ideal for searching just the content of a particular web site. When a search collection is created, the search administrator tells the Google Search Appliance to begin crawling at a specific URL - typically a particular web site's homepage. The appliance will then crawl all of the content in that web directory as well as any directories contained within it, thus creating a search collection.

If you are interested in creating a search collection to be included on your web site, please complete the form below.

Note: This is the starting point at which you'd like Google to begin crawling in order to build your search collection.
