Google’s Blog Search

Google has created a special search program that searches only blogs for the topics in which you have interest. The Google Blog Search comes complete with its own set of FAQs. You can access the blog search by clicking on the link above or going to Google’s Web site, clicking the “more>>” just above the data entry box, then selecting Blog Search on the Google Services page.

The blog search works likes Google’s regular search. You are presented with “results pages” with the results sorted by relevancy. I searched for “blogs“. Google returned
“Results 1-10 of about 1,340,419 for ‘blogs’ “. Then I searched for “web development blogs” and Google returned “Results 1-10 of about 13,164 for ‘web development blogs'”. So, the more specific you get, the tighter the results.

If you’ve subscribed to an RSS Reader (see my earlier post: What is RSS? ), when you find a blog that you want to follow, add it to your list.

How do You Get Your Blog Listed?
Google says that,

“… we will soon be providing a form that you can use to manually add your blog to our index, in case we haven’t picked it up automatically. Stay tuned for more information on this.”
