Search Engine Use for Your Cal Poly Web Site

Help Others Search Your Website

It's easy to put a search box on your own web site and have it search only your site. The search box is powered by the Google search service that Cal Poly uses through the CSU Chancellor's Office. You can use our help pages for the CP Search service to learn how how to create a search form on your own Web site. Please note that the Cal Poly Web template already has the search box feature built into it.
