I noticed you used the old domain for Blogoscoped in your API search. How is the migration over to the new site going in terms of Google's Index?

Soon after the move it was 25% blogoscoped.com, 75% blog.outer-court.com. Over time, more and more from the new site was taken in replacement of the old domain, and now it's somewhat stuck to 75% blogoscoped.com and 25% blog.outer-court.com. However, the image index speed is apparently completely different, because blogoscoped.com is still at 0% there!

It's weird how if you hit the X next to the search button it gets rid of the search results and clears the search box. But why can't it also let go of the screen space for where the search results would go. Instead it lives a giant block of empty space.

I really did not like Google JS API, Also I do not like AJAX.

I once suggested keep SOAP. Limited account for free. Nolimited account for Google Adsensed Site.

Colin, The spacing is a function of how this site choose to use the API:

He is defining a fixed size region thats dedicated to holding a search control

   #searchControl {
   height: 560px;
   width: 500px;
   overflow: hidden;
   }

Here is another sample that demonstrates how the space is reclaimed:

It is for me. I am using Opera. Firefox, IE et al don't do it?

I inserted a (quick n dirty) fixed spacing because the <div> as provided by Google's sample wouldn't auto-adjust its height... so it was overlaying the footer of the page with its results! I guess there's a better fix using CSS/ JS for that?

I deleted height and width, so got auto height and width
