Creating a Google Custom Search Engine to Search Your Favorite Sites.

I was goofing off online the other day and came across Google's Custom Search Engine. Creating a CSE allows you to leverage the power of Google's search engine while keeping the search constrained to a very small subset of sites. This can be especially useful if one of the sites you use frequently has very poor searching capabilities (ahem... I'm talking to you reddit.)

I went ahead and created my own Custom Search Engine to search StackOverflow and StackOverflow Meta.

If you are interested in extending what I already have or want a jumping off point for your own project, you can check out the code for StackSearch here.
