I was asked this question today and I could not give an answer.

 

User wants to use the free Google Site Search but without the Ad's. Is this possible?

 

I have never used this myself on any site so I do not know. I wonder if there is similar free search that looks like Google but no ads.

 

 

thanks

I suppose you could just give them a search box and redirect to the search term plus "site:website.com". Using "site:" automatically limits the search to the specific web site. It would probably involve sending them to Google for a results page though. If you want nice results on your own site you'd probably need to use their service.

 

I don't do much of this stuff anymore though, so I'm not sure, maybe someone else has a better answer, that one is just simple and easy without trying to cheat your way into using their service without ads.

Adblock is probably the best you can do.

So Google Custom Search offers two plans, the free ad-supported plan and the paid non-ad support plan so using the free version ad-free is not really an option. 

 

But there are other options such as using Sphider

 

You are not going to have much luck finding a search engine that will give you free searching of your site with the type of style and familiarity of Google. Alternatively if you are a good developer you could check out the Bing Search API. It doesn't seem very promising, but it's worth a shot.

the other option depending on which CMS you are using  (if you are using one) there might be a search option already built in that you just need to enable. I know post of the popular ones already have search by default.
