SnapEngage provides an option to use Google Custom Search engine as a knowledge base source.


SnapEngage uses ‘Custom Search JSON/Atom API’ provided by Google. Some prerequisites are required before using custom search with SnapEngage.

Please note that Google Custom Search is a paid option. Please check the pricing before using it.
