How to add a Google Blog Search in your Blog?

I have been using Technorati blog search add-in for Sree’s Tech Notes. Lately I find Technorati weaker and weaker as the blogosphere grows. Google Blog Search now performs much better than Technorati search, updates it’s indexes within minutes.

Technorati provides eazy to copy & paste code for incorporating their blog search engine to any blog. But I haven’t seen Google doing this. Anyway, I like the Google service and want to put it in my blog.

Here is the code I wrote to incorporate Google Blog Search in Sree’s Tech Notes blog.

<form class="search" action="" 
method="get" onsubmit="if(this.q.value=='Search Tech Notes')
{return false;}else{this.q.value=this.s.value+' 
<input type="text" size="18" name="s" value="Search Tech Notes" 
title="Enter Your Search Query Here" 
onfocus="if(this.value=='Search Tech Notes'){this.value=''};" 
onblur="if (this.value==''){this.value='Search Tech Notes'};" />&nbsp;
<input type="submit" value="Search"/>
<input type="hidden" name="q"/>


BTW, which blog search engine do you use? Why?
