This plugin will replace the WordPress default search query with server-side results from Custom Search Site Restricted JSON API. This replacement is done on the WordPress back-end, so results appear as normal within WordPress search.
- Get Google API key. An API key is a way to identify your client to Google.
- Get Programmable Search engine ID. In Google settings, restrict the Search engine to only search for your one site.
- On WordPress dashboard, set API Key and Custom Search Engine ID in the plugin settings.
Dashboard > Settings > Reading > Search with Google Settings.
- Custom Search Site Restricted JSON API can show only 100 search results for the query.
- A result page can have maximum of 10 results.
BTW, We’re Hiring!
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Follow “Setup” instructions in ReadMe to configure credentials from Google Developers Console.
