googleSearch component

Here's the first ad unit (float left).

This component allows you to add Google Adsense Search to your Joomla site.

The search results are displayed right inside your Joomla page!

No more popup page. No more diversion to other pages.

Available for both Joomla 1.0.x and native 1.5.x!

Add more power with googleSearch module

You might also want to complement this component with the googleSearch module.

The module allows you to add an additional Google search box as a module. This means that you can place the search form in any module position you like. When the user clicks the search button, the search result will be displayed in your Joomla main body by the googleSearch component.

Here I add a link unit:
