Google Search Component
The Google Search component allows users to search through a sub-section of your site using Google's search engine.
When should it be used?
The Google Search component can be used when you want to limit the number of pages in a given search query. (Note that every site in AEM includes a Google search field in the top right-hand corner of the page that searches the entire site by default.)
Example of the Google Search component
This example of the Google Search component is configured to search within the "Components" section of the CMS Help site. Test it out by typing in a component's name (e.g., carousel) and clicking the Search button.
Configuring the component
To configure the Google Search component to search a sub-section of your website, click on the magnifying glass and navigate to the desired root page. The component will search that page and any child pages below it.
Tips: In order for the Google Search Component to work, the pages the component has been configured to search through must be:
- indexed by Google; and
- not behind a login page (see Restricted Page Viewing)
