Free Google Site Search Engine-Please Help

by Ceecee / March 17, 2004 2:56 AM PST

We've just added the free google site search to our webpage. The search works, but for some reason it won't pick up every instance of the word searched for. For example: If I enter a search to search for my name on the site, the google site search engine will only pick up one instance of my name instead of all pages on the site with my name listed. This is just one example of incomplete search results.

I've checked Google's help pages for answers but I can't figure out what the problem is. I'm wondering if it makes a difference if I include the "www" prefix before my domain name in the google html code when it calls for YOUR DOMAIN NAME. Should I just put the domain name without the www prefix to search my site? Maybe adding the www. first is causing a problem?

Any clues would be appreciated. I'm not very good with HTML yet.

Thanks ahead of time.

PS- Here's the code that I'm talking about.
<!-- SiteSearch Google -->
<FORM method=GET action="http://www.google.com/search">
<TABLE bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><tr><td>
<A HREF="http://www.google.com/">
<IMG SRC="http://www.google.com/logos/Logo_40wht.gif"
border="0" ALT="Google"></A>
<INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=31 maxlength=255 value="">
<INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE="Google Search">
<font size=-1>
<input type=hidden name=domains value="YOUR DOMAIN NAME"><br><input type=radio name=sitesearch value=""> WWW <input type=radio name=sitesearch value="YOUR DOMAIN NAME" checked> YOUR DOMAIN NAME <br>
<!-- SiteSearch Google -->

I have some knowledge of forms HTML which google search uses.so I will try to help you all I can. Try adding http:// before the www.yoursite.com or the problem still exits, try contacting their help personal directly. I don't know why I can't seem to get to www.google.com at this point of time, but I do hope my advice could help you.

Yes. You need to replace "YOUR DOMAIN NAME" with your domain.com ( your website name ) .. which ever it is. This will allow you to search anything inside your domain ( website ).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
