Hey Guys,

I just created an abandonware search engine using Google's Custom Search Creator. Please try it out and let me know what you think.

Or, even easier:

Works great for me, and it shows abandonia at the top of the results always, even above HotU.

Heh. It's great, but it wasn't planned. If you search for abandonware on Google, you'll see that Abandonia appears on the 1st page while Underdogs only on the 3rd. This means that Abandonia's page rank is much higher and is the reason why it's first in the list.

Well there is a way. Just use bookmark keywords. So just create a bookmark with the following url:
Code:
http://www.google.com/custom?cx=010356002036525877607%3Armin8mhjnh8&q=%s&sa=Search&cof=CX%3APC%2520Abandonware%3BFORID%3A0&hl=en&client=google-coop
and give it a keyword, eg: abandonware. This is done in the properties of the bookmark (go to Organise Bookmarks for that)

Once that is done you can search just by typing "abandonware ultima 6" to search for ultima 6.
