As of April 1st, 2017, Google will no longer be selling or renewing the Google Site Search feature, and will be completely removing the product by April 1st, 2018. If you have this feature with your Practis Site, your renewal is anywhere between July 31st and February 3rd, and your site search will be automatically downgraded to the free Custom Search Engine (CSE) product by Google on the renewal date.
Currently, we are offering a few options for you and your site:
- Do nothing. You are more than welcome to leave the CSE version in place. However, this is ad-supported and will display certain ads within the search results.
- Install a new search feature in place of GSS. We are currently investigating alternative solutions. If interested, we will evaluate your situation and provide recommendations. From here, we will let you know the time/cost associated with the new feature.
- Remove site search completely. Let us know, and we will evaluate the time/cost associated with removing this feature.
For more information on this, please contact your Online Marketing Representative, or fill out our support form.
