Search The Search Marketing & SEO Forums With Our Google CSE

I have been meaning to create a Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) specifically to search the forums that we report on here for a while. I had 5 minutes and that is all it took. You can visit the the Search Engine Roundtable Google Custom Search Engine and conduct a search. It should bring back results from the following forums:

You can see a search in action by searching on minus 30, where I wanted to find all threads discussing the Minus 30 Penalty (also discussed here).

So give our Search Engine Roundtable Google Custom Search Engine a try and let us know what you think.

Very nice tool and long overdue, in my opinion. I created a much broader SEO Discussion Search tool at but your tool will make it easier for people to find old discussions you have documented. I hope you add it to your permanent navigation (a folder tab would be great, in my opinion).

Added to "The Forums" section and also it is rebuilding the site to add to the top nav, upper text links, near "submit a thread." Thanks Michael! Chris Boggs gets credit for pushing me to do this! I am honestly surprised how nice the results are. If you want me to add a forum, please let me know.

Yyou can get a great ad free search engine with a better layout, tag clouds, automatic query learning/refinement, and full customization. Add free is key for me.

Hi Barry, Is your SE restricted to english forums? If you want to add foreign languages forums, feel free to add my french forums WebRankInfo (+630,000 posts). By the way, I've just published my new custom search engine at This SE searchs only on the Google official blogs (46 at this time). Olivier
