    So, unless you have your own website where you can write in HTML, you csn't use Adsense for search?

    Correct. I don't know of any revenue share website that allows adsense for search for its customers. smile

    Aya, people can put it on their blogs; but if I'm correct Ad Sense for search can end up costing people money.  I didn't read a lot about it once I saw what left me under that impression.  Maybe others can correct me or elaborate.

    No, it's wrong. And frankly I hear this for the first time. Where did you pick this? smile

      I just went looking to see if I could find what I read, but I couldn't find it (at least not very quickly).  There's the chance that what I read was about something other than AdSense (maybe AdWords), although when I ran into it I was trying to sign up for AdSense for Search.   

      This isn't very helpful to anyone looking for solid information (and again, I stress, it's not "solid information" by any means); but I thought I read something about how, if there were x number too many searches on a site Google may start charging something like a on-a- per-search basis or maybe after-x-many-searches, or something like that.  Whatever it was that I was reading mentioned that people can think it's free but end up owing Google money.  I was under the impression that even if I signed up I would probably not have to worry about being charged; but because "one never knows", I was afraid to sign up.   I don't want any surprise bills.

      Maybe, too, what I read didn't apply to Blogger blogs?  At this point, it would be good if someone who knows for sure (maybe you, Misha?) that too many searches won't result in any charges could comment here?

    AdSense for Search offers web site owners the opportunity to add search cababilites to their own site (based on Google indexing) while also displaying paid ads, which the publisher gets a percentage of (when clicked on).

    It's only really useful if you have your own site and have sufficient content that people would want to search it.

    It doesn't cost you anything as a publisher, in the same way that the content version doesn't.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, Misha and R.P. Chapman. That clears it up.
