Everyone is talking about the announcement that Google Blog Search looks more like Google News, the home page and works a bit more like Techmeme.

Honestly, it feels like just yesterday when Google launched blog search. Well, technically, it was a little over three years ago. But over time, blog search became more and more part of Google.

So now, Google Blog Search has a new front page with subcategories:

The interesting bit is that although tons of blogs and news sites are covering the news, we only have a bit of discussion. In fact, the only discussion I found was a single post at WebmasterWorld.

Blogsearch doesn't seem to get much traffic, even though it shows many sites that cannot rank well in Google's Main Web search results. I have found it to be a very useful resource.
