If you are a return visitor, you may have noticed that there is now a Search box on the left side of the screen. You can search either just this site or many others on the Internet.
When you search this site, the search results will show in a new window and under the banner of the search engine chosen. For example, if Google is listed in the pull-down, the results will be served up in a Google-produced window. So, you will see the results AND whatever advertising someone has bought using the search terms you entered. Note that I have no control over this "feature."
If you wish to search the Internet and NOT my site, just push the Web radio button. At that point, I suggest that you look at the entire pull-down list of possible search sites. Choose either a single one (e.g. - Yahoo) or an entire category (e.g. Blog Search).
That's all there is to it.
Note that there are many search widgets that I can use on my site. If you like this one, let me know. If you don't like it, let me know.
