Google Site Search (GSS) Service Update We have received several inquires lately regarding the announcement by Google regarding the shut down of their Google Site Search (GSS) service. However, please note that your current GSS search engine will automatically convert to a Google Custom Search (CSE) engine later this year in the fall. However, the important thing to note is that your search engine will continue to function normally and will not display ads in the search results. We have just received official confirmation from our Google rep that government agencies such as ourselves will continue to have the option to disable ads. So you can ignore the following warning messages when viewing your current GSS engine.
