Search your published Site

  1. Visit your site's published URL
  2. Use the Open search bar icon (looks like a magnifying glass) located at the top right of the site.
  3. Enter a search query
  4. Open the search result you looked for.


  • Site search only works if your site has more than 1 published page and only available at the published URL.
  • You will not get the content of embedded Google Drive items, e.g. Google Docs, PDFs or Word Documents, will not appear in the search results.
  • If you pay for G Suite Business or Enterprise you have extra search settings - see: Cloud Search Option and Gadget
