Putting results from Adsense for Search on your own website

Adsense for Search has a great feature; it allows you to display the search results on your own web site. Suppose you have a web site with great navigation, letting people find things easily. And so when you search, you really don’t want your users to get a page that is the standard Google search page. Well, worry not. Adsense for Search lets you put your search results on a page on your own site; isn’t that great ?
This is how Google puts it:

What does it mean to display search results within my own site?
When you display AdSense for search results within your site, the results of a user search performed in your AdSense for search box will appear within a frame on your own page. This means that rather than users being taken to Google, they will stay on your site, while still having access to the useful information provided through Google web search.

So, the next question is about how you can actually create the page where the Adsense for Search results can be shown. Here’s the complete answer from Google:
Before you can implement AdSense for search results within your own site, be sure to create the page where the search results will be displayed. If your web host or site application does not offer you the ability to create a separate URL for your search results — for example, if you’re using Blogger — you will not be able to implement your search results within your page. Once you’ve created the page where search results will be displayed, follow these steps:

1. Log in to your account at https://www.google.com/adsense.
2. Visit the AdSense Setup tab
3. Choose AdSense for search as the product.
4. During the first step of the guided setup, scroll down to the More options section and click the radio button marked Open results within my own site
5. Enter the URL of the page you’ve created in which you’d like search results to appear. You must create this page yourself; it will not be created or displayed automatically on the URL you enter. If you’re familiar with relative URLs, you’re welcome to enter one instead of the full URL.
6. Continue to choose any other options for your search box and results.
7. Copy the code generated in the Your search box code box and paste it into the HTML source of the page where you’d like to display the search box.
8. Next, copy the code generated in the box labeled Your search results code and paste it into the HTML source of the page on which you’d like to display the search results.
9. Save your webpages

Note: Any AdSense for search settings or options that you’ve selected, including Competitive Ad Filters and site-flavored search, will continue to work with search results in an IFRAME.
