I want to dislay the google results in my website.  
I am running PHP and want to dynamically display the google search engine results in my webpage.
The google results I assume will be displayed in a frame on my webpage.

For example, I have the query http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=aflcio and I want the resulting data displayed on my website.

meaning you want to display that page in a iframe or you want to curl the data into your own web page?

in this case, the choice isn't about optimization.  They are substantially different ways of doing this with significant trade-offs.

For an IFRAME, it's going to be obvious that you are just putting google in an IFRAME.  and you won't be able to control anything about it.

For curl, google probably won't appreciate it.

a third option is that google has a search API that you can use, but I believe they charge to use it for any commercial purpose.

Simply grab an RSS feed of your search

http://news.google.com/news?q=aflcio&output=rss

Google RSS Feed info: http://www.google.com/support/news/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=59255

Search Google for RSS PHP if you need more info on how to display the XML data in PHP.  There are a lot of libraries out there.

Here is one way to do it. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-phprss/index.html
