Simple Google search - Coldfusion - Getting Started

I'm trying to develop a search page for my website, but rather than using Verity I want to use Google.

    Default Simple Google search

    I'm trying to develop a search page for my website, but rather than using
    Verity I want to use Google.
    I have a search box in my cfm.dwt.template that I want people to be able to
    type in a phrase and then Coldfusion query Google and then return the details
    on a search page (not on a google url).
    I understand that it is possible using the <cfhttp> tag to do this but I'm not
    sure how to. (I do not have a Google license key so I cannot use the API way
    usually specified)
    Is anybody aware of how this can be done? Any help is appreciated.

    Use Web Services.

    I posted a GoogleAPI CFC back in the day (before I worked for Google's worth
    competitor MSN Search). It's in the dev exchange, but that flash UI is such a
    pain I'm just gonna point you to:
