  • Create your own Google Custom Search Engine, and grab the CX identifier. You’ll need it to use this gem.
  • Register an app with Google to allow access to the custom search API, and grab the API key from the ‘API Access’ tab. Bear in mind that the courtesy limit is very low for this service, at 100 queries per day. After that, it’s ‘$5 per 1000 queries, for up to 10,000 queries per day’.
  • Try out the example code.
