Google Blog Search Has A New Button
Posted 24 April 2006 - 04:00 PM
I am, of course, assuming everyone can see this. I also read today in one of the Google blogs that they sometimes do tests on some of their searchers. They will show a new search page to a small fraction of their visitors and see what reaction they get. I hope I'm not just one of the few anthropoids they're trying this on at the moment.

Veering only slightly off-topic, I admit this is really the first time I've ever really paid attention to Google's blog search. While I was there, I decided to search for some phrases. I have several blogs, and these are phrases that I rank well for in the regular Google web search. Lo and behold, I don't rank well for them in the blog search. Go figure...my blogs do well in regular search, but not in blog search. *scratching my head*

If I want to know the most up-to-date stuff on a topic, I do a Blog Search first. After that I would then do a regular search, which is why the new button really works well for me.
You'll find your blog entries are within the Blog Search usually within an hour. It then may take up to a week before they appear in the regular search.
I don't think Google has made enough noise about this. I find it one of the most effective ways of being aware of the latest happenings.

I'm waiting for the main G index to update its backlinks.
