Javascript is not the best way to build a search engine... it's very slow.

If you're looking for a quick solution, Atomz Express Search is about the best out there:
http://www.atomz.com/applications/search/trial.htm

Just sign up for the free account, and add their pre-built code to your search pages(s). It's very easy, and extremely capable.

Thanks,
Sean

Yes, but remember that adding a Google search window to your website doesn't mean it has been or will be fully indexed by Google.  If Google hasn't indexed your site fully, you might not get very good results.  Seanpowell's atomz option is probably preferable.

If you have a lot of traffic & search needs, you might want to try Google Custom WebSearch http://www.google.com/services/custom.html.  If you have a huge ecomm site, you might want to consider Google's search appliance, http://www.google.com/appliance/pdf/ds_GSA_sitesearch.pdf.

For a generic search engine form

<form action="http://google.com/search">
 <input type="text" name="q">
 <input type="submit" value="Search">
</form>

for a domain search eg

<form action="http://google.com/search" onsubmit="q.value='site:www.experts-exchange.com '+q.value">
  <input type="text" name="q">
  <input type="submit" value="Search Site">
</form>>
