    Hello there.
    Im currently developing my blog. Im working on the comment section, and most importantly, on the search bar...

    Right now, when you search for something, your query opens up in a new Google search page. The query inside the search bar looks like this:

    Code:
    site:example.com user search query goes here
    As you can see, that way, the user wont see any other results from other websites: theyll only see results for my website.

    Will this help my website rank in any way?
    Should I make an internal search (make my server seek for blog articles by himself) instead and make money by showing ads?

    What do you think?

    I have seen such type of search options in many blogs or sites but I don't think this so useful tricks to get traffic. The search bar is just a search bar & will only useful to search only.

    I think you should use internal search because of the internal search for informational websites. this is a custom search engine this is good for online shops they have valuable data for optimizing your website but it depends on your business.

    You have to ask yourself whether you are okay with the fact that a user will search for something in the search bar on your site and even though this something appears on your site on a certain page it will not be shown to that user because maybe Google crawled it but decided not to display it in the search results or another option is that the content is on a new page has not yet been crawled by Google.
