  2. Click Setup from the menu on the left and then click the Basics tab.
  3. Click Get code.
  4. Copy the code and paste it into your site’s HTML source code where you want your search engine to appear.If you've chosen the two column or two page layout option, you'll need to copy and paste two snippets of code:
    1. Paste the first code snippet where you want the search box to appear.
    2. Paste the second code snippet where you want the search results to appear.

Mobile site code for Google Site Search

If you have a Google Site Search account with no associated AdSense account, you can use the mobile version of the code for your site. Mobile code should only be used on sites that will not also be accessed from a desktop.

Mobile code doesn't support Custom Search v1 code.

Add mobile code to your mobile site:

  1. From the control panel, select the search engine you want to edit. 
  2. If you aren't already on the Basics tab, click Setup from the left menu and then click Basics.
  3. Click Get code.
  4. Click on the Mobile tab. 
  5. Copy the code and paste it into your mobile site's HTML where you want the search element to appear.
