Google's blogging platform Blogger has taken its Search Box feature out of "Blogger in Draft" and made it available to all users. The Search Box is a gadget that enables readers to search a blog's posts, web pages linked from the blog, a blog's lists, and link lists.
Search Box automatically detects new posts that it can incorporate into the search results. The gadget also picks up on a blog's style and colors. Search Box uses AJAX Search APIs to create a tight look that integrates well with the blog. Custom Search helps serve up the results.
In order to add the Search Box...
