Ag Google Custom Search Explained

The Google Custom Search box on Ag CMS and some other Ag websites searches only the Web servers that Ag Comm is aware of that host content for NDSU Agriculture and Extension. It is not a full Google function that searches the entire Web. The box is in the upper right on computers and tablets, and in the black footer on mobile devices

Here are the sites the Ag Google Custom Search now includes:

www.ag.ndsu.edu/
www.ndsu.edu/soils/
www.ndsu.edu/range/
www.ndsu.edu/nrm/

www.ndsu.edu/snrs/

www.ndsu.edu/entomology/
www.ndsu.edu/vetandmicro/
www.ndsu.edu/4h
www.ndsu.edu/aben
www.ext.nodak.edu/
www.ag.ndsu.nodak.edu/
http://ndawn.ndsu.nodak.edu/

If you’re aware of sites that should be added, let Roger Egeberg know.

Search is usually a quicker way to find information than navigation. Just be sure to use words that are as specific as possible. For example, searching for “mold” in our Google Custom Search will provide results on mold in homes, white mold on vegetables and mold in stored corn. But searching for “white mold soybeans” gets you right to that information.

Also, write Web documents so keywords are in headlines and subheads and at the beginning of paragraphs. Writing for the Web is much different than writing for print, so follow these guidelines.

Another useful Google Custom Search is https://search.extension.org/ that searches Extension websites from around the country.
