This project is not covered by Drupal’s security advisory policy.

NOTE: This module has been merged into Google CSE ( and it's not anymore maintained. For the latest changes and features go to Google CSE.

Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) is an embedded search engine that can be used to search any set of one or more sites with an optional (and non-free) variant to use XML for searches. This module allows seamless integration with Drupal, same as core Search module provides or ApacheSolr does.

This module also exposes Google CSE filters as blocks, allowing easy filtering and uses custom hooks providing ability to change search requests before they are posted and alter filters on display.

You can use Google CSE Advanced, when:

  • You have a Google CSE account with XML capabilities and a CX (API) key
  • You need to seamlessly integrate Google Search into your site without any advertising

Google CSE Advanced is compatible with core Search module therefore all search results are themed using standard Drupal templates (search-results.tpl.php, etc.)
