1. What is a Xoops Custom Search Engine?

A Xoops Custom Search Engine is a tailored search experience, built using Google's core search technology, which prioritizes or restricts search results based on Xoops websites and pages that we specify.

2. How does the Xoops Custom Search Engine work?

Simply submit websites or pages you'd like to include in our xoops search engine index. You can choose either to restrict your search results to include only these pages and sites, or simply to give these pages and sites higher priority and ranking in the larger Google index.

3. What are the websites included now?
I've just included what I visit often to keep me updated about xoops. Please free to add your favourited to the index which will give the right information what xoops users would like to see in their search results.
