Google Custom Search - Google Search Results in the Store

Integration with Google Custom Search allows for direct presentation of Google search results in the store. Google search is integrated with the store's search engine. After entering the "phrase" in the search field, both products matching the query and other pages searched by Google will be displayed as results. Additionally, it is possible to connect to the search not only the store's own page, but also other pages and domains.
