Google Custom Search Engines Easier To Build With New Link Learning Tool

The Google Custom Search blog announced an interesting new feature that allows you to tell Google to customize the search results of your Google CSE based on who you link to within your site.

Google will look at who you link to, then use that information to add content that your custom search engine searches against.

Imagine, if you have a resource page of mobile products and you constantly update that page with more resources. In the past, if you had a Google CSE, you would have to manually add the new resource to your Google CSE sites list. Now, Google will automatically pick up that you linked to a new resource, and it will add it to your Google CSE automatically.

How do you do this?

Go to Google CSE, then click on your “control panel”, then click on “sites” and then click the “add sites” button. That will pop open this box:

Select the “dynamically extract links from this page and add them to my search engine” option.
