    Of course Paul would have to answer this directly but I think it would be considered bad manners to use a google search on one of your hubs.  It would be soley for your gain and would draw visitors away from hubpages.  Now if hubpages could figure out a way to share the revenue from it then I am sure they would be more open to it.

    I think it is really question to HP owners, as Hoodala mentioned. It is their site, and they can allow or prohibit that at their discretion. If I was them I would not allow this. And, I would probably consider adding google search capsule...

    What I would like to see is for google to add a HubPages search box to their sites.  We'd certainly consider reciprocating. wink

      Google custom search engine which searches only is live.
      Anyone can use this custom search engine to search hubpages.It can give more refined search on can be found at … m105vjupd8

      Either you can bookmark this page or it can be added to your custom Google homepage by visiting this link : … pd8/gadget

      By adding this custom search engine to Google homepage (iGoogle) you can perform a search on pages of indexed by Google.This would  drive more traffic to because only pages from appear in search results.

      Hubpages authors can also benefit from this as they can find whether their hubs are listed in Google by entering the title of their hubs and clicking search button.

      Hope this would be helpful to all of you.

    That sounds like a really good idea and it would help get more good members although we do not want the bad ones.  Thanks for your help everyone

    I would like to see a Google search bar as well however I don't think the chief hubbers would go for it. The reason is it would take traffic away from HubPages and I guess the idea is to keep people on hubpages for as long as possible. Actually I have now talked myself out of wanting a google search bar.

    Great idea Paul, you're not too far from where Larry and Sergey hang out, why don't you run up the street and see if they would go for it.  I think it would be a real enhancement to google.

    I have the same question but as you can see I'm not a computer person because I didn't even know how to find the response??? I can't sign up for Amazon or Ebay or Anatyics because I don't know how to paste anything in my hubpage,its unfortunate that google doesn't show specific directions for people who are using hubpages-because it's different from the usual page or blog.

    Any advice? I would truly appreicate it. I've had over a thousand people visit my site and I've only gotten credit for page impression and click, I wanted to cry!

      Hubpages have a help section that shows you what to do:
