Google has released Custom Search Business Edition (CSBE), a hosted site search solution that provides Google results for any website. The tool is customized and integrated into specific business sites. CSBE builds on the Google Custom Search Engine, a hosted search solution introduced last October that allows organizations to create a search engine and search results that are tailored to their point of view. Businesses that want further control over results presentation and integration with their website can obtain results through XML. With CSBE, Google gives business sites have the option to turn off ads and have further control over branding. In addition, CSBE provides options for email and phone support. No hardware or software installations are required to use CSBE. To add a search engine to a website, users complete the short setup wizard and then copy and paste a snippet of code into a site. Pricing starts at $100 per year for searching up to 5,000 pages.
