Create Your Own Yahoo Blog Search Box
Yahoo caught up with some of its competition last week by adding blogs to the Yahoo News index along with integrated Flickr and audio content. Yahoo Blog Search is not full blown search, but more of the featuring of blogs along with traditional news channels, which blogs may or may not replace in years to come.
Yahoo did leave out one simple step in the blog search process, the ability to search those blogs using a search box. For those of you, like me, who would rather just search blogs than sift through news listings at Yahoo, Amit Agarwal has a solution at Digital Inspiration.
If Yahoo won’t build a blog search box for you, well then, just follow Amit’s simple steps to go ahead and do it yourself! Amit features his own Yahoo Blog Search Box on his blog along with the code that any blog or site publisher could easily cut and paste into their code or template :
<form action=”http://blog.news.search.yahoo.com/blog/search” method=”get”>
<input type=”text” name=”p”/>
<input type=”submit” value=”Search Blogs”/>
