Google Blog Search Released
Google has publicly released blogsearch.google.com today a search facility for blog postings.
As always the search is fast, and provide high quality results. Interestingly enough, indexing is done by reading the blog’s RSS feeds every time a ping is sent to weblogs.com, and not by conventional web crawling.
User’s can also use this search through search.blogger.com and through the blogger dashboard (for people with blogger.com accout).
Subscribe to search results with RSS
Also one can use RSS to subscribe for specific search results! Your RSS reader will inform you everytime someone has used the “search term” you are subscribed to, within their blog post.
Blogger.com going portal?
On the same lines, the new blogger.com homepage includes a scrolling window of updated blogs, a "blog of the day". Is google trying to kill technorati? why shouldn't it - it will probably do a better job at it as it is. When will they introduce tagsearch.google.com - a search engine to search everything that is tags? flickr, 43place, 43things, RawSugar, delicious, yummy, MyTube, etc... ?
