    1. Hello Rachit,
      Be Specific with your question. I didn't get you !
      The Profile being displayed at the right side ? Actually its in your hand. You just go in Template >> Edit HTML and set it to Left, Top, Bottom anywhere you want and more over Sitelinks Search Box need the Custom Search Engine not our profile !
