Link to the presentation and tutorial on how to set up a custom search engine and implement it on you site or blogs:


So, What is Google Custom search Engine? It's a tool that enables the website owners to define their own search engines. The CSE provides a simple form-based interface for building a domain specific search engine with the Google search plat form. For example, You might have seen many websites or blogs having their own search bars in their sites. However, the results that you search from it are sometimes not relevant to what you really want. To improve the search bar features, one can implement the Google custom search engine into their sites. Besides searching you own sites or blog only, the Google cse could also help you to search on the specific websites that you want the results to come out from. In this way, it could filter out the unnecessary information and make the search more efficient.

To keep the client files secure, most of the cloud providers offer basic secure services. However, that doesn’t really assure users that hackers can’t get into their cloud accounts. Cloud users should keep in mind that even though the cloud services have already provided the first layer of secure to their files, there’s still possibilities that the files on the cloud could be hacked. The clients themselves should be responsible for the security of their files. So, the best way to go about this is to encrypt them.  Encrypting files before syncing them to the cloud is actually not hard at all. You do not need to know any code or hire someone else to encrypt your files. There are some services on the internet that offers encryption for free, or a small fee. Besides the web tools, you can also encrypt your file on your own.One of the most popular on cloud encryption service is box cryptor. It is really easy to install and use. The program uses AES-256 and RSA encryption algorithms to protect your files. It could not be easily decrypted by others.
