Blog Search Engine Powered by Google Custom Search

SMS Text

In an effort to fully understand the technology and offerings behind Google Custom Search Engine, I have changed Blog Search Engine’s search index over to a Google Co-op powered search index which will only serve blogs contributed by volunteers (and blog owners) who sign up to submit to the Blog Search Engine via Google.

I found the implementation of the search box, search result page, and AdSense advertisements to be incredibly easy and am now building a custom base index for the Blog Search Engine based upon my favorite blogs, popular blogs, and spam free blog networks.

The Blog Search Engine crunches about 5,000 blog searches per day, so if you join and submit your blog, chances are you will enjoy some extra traffic from our new limited and quality (spam free?) search index.

Join our Blog Search Engine Google Co-op group and submit your blog along with your favorite blogs in the blogosphere.

  • Nice idea, Loren.

    I’ve been trying out a Eurekster custom search engine for around a month or so, but am curious about Google’s approach. I’m going to have to think about comparing the two.

  • The ability for users to volunteer and contribute sites (or in this case blogs) to the Google powered index at Blog Search Engine is quite special.

    The search experience is quite nice and the speed is insane.

    I’m hoping to add some top quality blogs and ‘editors’ to the program using Co-op. It’s great to see a social search offering from Google that’s so worth using!

  • When I first saw the headline, I was like who cares. After reading the full run down on Matt Cutts blog, I am slightly impressed. This goes way beyond what Yahoo Builder does.

    Will this be the next DMOZ with a million copy cat sites out there? How will Google treat their own content? It will be interesting to see how this develops over a year.

  • This is very cool. I like what Google is doing.

  • Great idea. Google again shows the future of tech
