A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Google Adsense for Search and IE7 Openseach Provider

I managed to speak to the Google Adsense for Search team about using my Google Adsene Account in the SiteSearch in IE7, suffice to say I was correct in my first guess: You are not allowed to use anything but their search boxes. I think this is a bit limiting, but the person I spoke to said they would pass it to their product team for consideration.

So in summary, using IE 7's open search provider with Adsense is a no no.

I think they would know. The opensearch API must be passing query parameters such as Referers and the like. I don't think it would be too hard to work out.

Also I think it is about good will too. If they ask you not to do it, you probably shouldn't they could turn off your adsense account.

I have seen other sites that simply changed the Google search box and they have been blocked from using the search too.

I don't see how a .net site can possibly use the Google code legally when it returns a form tag, and .net web forms can only have one form tag.

I've just started messing with it, but even if I move the method and action attributes to the main form tag I have trouble. Is there something special you are doing to enable Google AdSense for search on your site? Thanks.

This site is run on Linux and perl so doesn't have problems with form tags.
