When you search in Google Chrome Address Bar the chrome by default search your queries in google.com or in the search engines you put default in chrome search options @
Below is screenshot of my chrome default search options:
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:
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
Did you notice something ??
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.
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”
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:
Here you have to replace term SEO after q= with %s
So Just write :
in URL with %s in place of query search box.
5. You are Done save as Default.
Below are some example of %s URL to put in “URL with %s in place of query” :
