Buyer Beware

In trying to make my blog more functional, I decided to add a google search bar to search the contents of my site. I found this great guide on how to do this from the Six Apart website (owners of TypePad, LiveJournal, Moveable Type). I also found this site, which claims to “Put the power of blogs to work for your business.” The site promised to provide the same service, adding a search bar to a blog, for a fee of $25. The author of the blog must also supply the username/password. Not surprisingly, the code for the search bar located on their page is the same as the one given for free by Six Apart. This is not to say that the site does not provide a legitimate service to those who are somewhat technically challenged. But, with a little effort, it is likely you will find the answers you are looking for.
