Well i am using google.co.in as my default search engines means when i searched on address bar, Chrome automatically search my queries in google.co.in like below:

chrome-google-search

 

so my search quire “SEO” search in google.co.in but if you don’t want to use search in google when someone type in search bar instead you want to search in your favorite websites like any of your blog or for example in facebook.com

facebook-search-result-in-chrome

 

Did you notice something ??

facebook and google search

 

when i searched “SEO” , both times the address bar searching in different website first on google.com the in facebook.com

You can search any website by chrome address bar i am just taking facebook as an example.

To make any websites your default search option follow these steps :

1. Right Click on address bar of your google chrome browser.

edit-search-engines

Choose “Edit search engines…”

2. A new tab will open with address like chrome://settings/searchEngines

3. Here in second column, “Other search engines”. You can add any website as your default search engine for your chrome.

 

  • To Add new search engine:

4.1 Add the name of your search engine, for example for Facebook:

write Facebook in “Add a new search engine”

Google Chrome Social Log

P.S: you can add any name whatever you like.

4.2 In Keyword: write a domain of your website like for facebook write facebook.com

4.3 Here comes the technical part, URL with %s in place of query,

here you have to write the URL of your search query, in there instead of query of your search term, you have to just write %s

Like facebook search result URL is:

https://www.facebook.com/search/results.php?q=SEO

Here you have to replace term SEO after q= with %s

So Just write :

https://www.facebook.com/search/results.php?q=%s

in URL with %s in place of query search box.

%s search in google chrome

5. You are Done save as Default.

Below are some example of %s URL to put in “URL with %s in place of query” :

1. wikipedia.org:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=%s

2. youtube..com:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%s

  1. Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

  2. thanks for such a nice information. i appreciate your work.http://www.notebooksim.net

  3. What do I put in if I want a standard Google search in the omnibox? I have no idea what “URL with %s in place of query” means. It’s so confusing.
    I cannot just put in google.com It won;t accept the change.

    Thanks
