Microsoft today announced the launch of Live Search Box to enables website and weblog owners to give the gift of search to their users and by the looks of it through a very cool little widget.

When the user enters a query, the search box dynamically builds a floating <DIV> on your page to display the search results. You can customize the query in the first tab to search your site, your macro or anything else, while the second tab will return general web search results. The floating <DIV> will position itself appropriately, whether you decide to place the box on the left, right, top, or bottom of your Web site.

The Basic Search Box displays results on the Windows Live Search page and searches a single site that you specify (or the Web). The Advanced Search Box displays results on your site and searches multiple sites the search box creator specifies, the Web, or uses a Search Macro. Unlike Google and more like Yahoo - their is no opportunity (yet I believe) to monetize on Live Search Box searches. I'd like to emphasize "yet".
