Wondering what is the preferred method of implementing Google Custom Search with Atahualpa?

Is it:
http://digwp.com/2010/10/google-cust...o+WordPress%29

Or using one of these:
http://wordpress.org/plugins/google-custom-search/
or:
http://aleembawany.com/projects/word...search-plugin/

And if using a plugin, any tips?

I suspect the search box will go wherever you put the code. What have you tried?

What plugin are you using. If it has a widget did you add it to where you want it?

The instructions for the first one you mention say
Quote:
4. Add Google Custom Search Widget.
the second one references WP 2.7 so it looks very old....and the authors home page hasn't been updated since 2011

And I don't know how a Google search plugin would work unless you have a site Google can access.
