Manage Custom Search Engines from within Webmaster Tools

Many Custom Search users also regularly use Webmaster Tools. To make their lives more convenient, we’ve added a “Custom Search” feature to the Labs section of Webmaster Tools. This allows you to change your basic configuration, including the list of sites to search, and get the new code without leaving Webmaster Tools.

For users who have never created a Custom Search Engine, it helps you get started by automatically creating a default CSE that searches the current site selected in Webmaster Tools.

We hope these new features make it easier for you to provide a great search experience for visitors to your site. And as always, we welcome your feedback.
