Embed Google SERPs In Your Site

Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art

One of the daunting feats that we all want to do is to keep people on our page. One of the newest ways to do that is to embed Google SERPs (search engine results pages) in your site. This way, when someone comes to your site looking for your informative post and want to do research, they can with the click of the button and never have to leave your site. Now, before you all say that this is old news, let me go into it deeper. The picture to the right is actually OLD news. However, that is not quite what I am talking about here.

For those of you that do not know, Google now has a feature through Adsense that allows for you to have the Google search engine results pages show up inside your website. This way, a reader or consumer can stick around on your site for some extra time. The one thing that I am not keen on with this product is the fact that it has to be at least 800 pixels wide. For most people, this is a majority of your content display. For people that employ the 1200 pixel themes, this really would not be a problem if you have a single sidebar or two that are less than 400 pixels total.

In closing, it is still a great tool to add to your site if you want to keep people hanging around. If you click on the picture to the left, you will be able to view a site that has this in action. If you notice, the header is still active. If you want to see it in action for yourself, visit SEO Info Now.

Thanks for the heads up Hannah. It is working now. I hate copy & pasting, but sometimes time restraints call for it. I should have proofed it better.

Danny, this looks like fun. I went over to seonow.com and played with it. The only thing was that if I closed it, it closed the entire site. Can you make it so it opens in a new window so that when you close it you're still on the site? I love the idea of being able to search Google right from my site or blog!

Frank just said if you go into the html and put a no follow that would make it open in a new window - would that work?

Sharon, I love this tool. I have gone in and changed it to where it would open in a new window as opposed to the same window. All that one needs to do is add target="_blank" right after the url in the form action section. However, google makes it an option once you are setting it up so it is easier to do.

One another note, all of these comments are just now showing up for me. Weird.

The article is very nice, thank you for sharing it! I'm not fully through yet (it is extremely long) but it seems well researched and detailed.
