Google Wizards Conjure Google News Links for Web Sites

Users of this latest search tool can customize the appearance of the news bar widget and indicate what searches it should perform on Google News content.

Web site owners can now add a dynamic list of Google News headlines to any Web page, thanks to Google's new Ajax Search Wizard.

Users of this latest search tool can customize the appearance of the news bar widget -- changing its orientation from horizontal to vertical, for example -- and indicate what searches it should perform on Google News content. The Ajax Search Wizard then generates code that can be added to a Web page to make the widget appear when the page is visited.

Beyond its news bar widget, Google also offers Wizards to help create book and video bar widgets, as well as map search and video search widgets.

Google's Wizards let people without significant programming experience use Google's Ajax Search API. However, those with some knowledge of Cascading Style Sheets or Javascript will be able to further customize the look and feel of their Wizard-generated widgets.
