Ever since we launched Custom Search Engine (CSE), businesses of all sizes have been talking to us about specific features, more flexibility on presentation, and tighter integration with their websites and internal databases. We've heard you! Over the past year, we've launched powerful features, including improved language support, statistics and Linked CSEs. We've made Custom Search APIs available to developers, so that nifty search-enabled applications can be built atop the Custom Search platform.
Today, we're announcing Custom Search Business Edition (CSBE), an offering tailored to businesses that want more control over the search experience on their site. Search results can now be delivered through XML, offering further presentation control and flexibility to business users. Businesses now have the option to turn off ads. And CSBE provides options for email and phone support and Google branding is optional for business customers.
CSBE builds on the same foundation as CSE and offers all the benefits of Google search technology -- powerful algorithms, scale, reliability, performance and most importantly, world class search results.
You can directly sign-up for a new CSBE or convert your existing CSE (new Business tab on the control panel) to Business Edition for as low as $100 per year.
