Pimcore provides a simple interface to the Google Custom Search Engine which makes it easy to integrate a search engine into your website.
Setup in CSE Control Panel and Google Cloud Console
- Create and configure a new search engine at http://www.google.com/cse/ - for more information please visit: http://support.google.com/customsearch/ .
