Create a Search Engine Toolbar for Your Web Site

The trend started with Google releasing their toolbar for Internet Explorer. It changedrepparttar way we searched by makingrepparttar 131661 search engine available from insiderepparttar 131662 browser with no need forrepparttar 131663 user to go torepparttar 131664 particular website.

And now, Yahoo!, Microsoft, AOLů Every big corporation running a search engine has their own toolbar. So much so that if I turn allrepparttar 131665 toolbars installed on my particular browser, there would be little space left for browsing space!

So, how do you as a web publisher (or a content provider) reach out to your clientele? Get them to install a search toolbar that is custom made to suit your website. I found some companies selling tools to make customized toolbars, butrepparttar 131666 one I am discussing today providesrepparttar 131667 service for free and integrates custom search results for YOUR SITE.

Effective Brand has a complete web-based toolbar generator. Moreover, they hostrepparttar 131668 toolbar for you on their website with a custom page dedicated to it. The initial toolbar generator is a 4-step procedure where user gets to pick up a logo, a search string, custom buttons, and basic toolbar details. Andrepparttar 131669 system generatesrepparttar 131670 toolbar andrepparttar 131671 custom page.

What isrepparttar 131672 best thing about this toolbar generator? The ability to make changes without worrying about client end version. Whenever a user opensrepparttar 131673 browser,repparttar 131674 toolbar is updated withrepparttar 131675 latest settings and updates fromrepparttar 131676 server. Thus, one time installation is required onrepparttar 131677 client side. And with "recommended site" results integrated inrepparttar 131678 toolbar, it acts more as a search companion and not just like a static toolbar hogging valuable browser window space.
