Sick of Blog Search? Time To Give a Try

Nov 26, 2007 • 7:07 am | comments (3) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under - Ask Jeeves Blog SearchI have been watching a thread started by Barry W. at Cre8asite forums named Blogsearch, Google's Neglected Property back about a month or so ago. Since then, I have been trying to find a good blog search engine to use on a daily basis.

Personally and professionally, I dropped all my subscriptions to blog search engine searches. The results were 95% spam and simply wasted my time. I stuck with RSS News searches and that worked for me. But I was pretty sure I was missing something by not being 100% plugged into the blogosphere. So that thread at Cre8asite Forums sprung my interest.

Recently Read/Write Web asked So Which Blog Search Engine Do You Use? and I saw Steve Rubel twit that he uses "Bloglines/Ask a lot" for blog search. So I have been giving it a try and so has Barry W.

A new Cre8asite Forums thread has early positive feedback from folks. I have resubscribed to my RSS searches to the blogosphere and I feel more plugged in. The results are actually fairly good and I don't feel like I am wasting my time with blog search anymore. Barry W. said:

I'm really finding it excellent. For any item found you can immediately subscribe to the RSS feed or you can post it to some of the more popular social media sites.

So why not give blog search a deeper try?
