Google Launches Blog Search Beta
Google on Wednesday took the wraps off a new search engine devoted to Web logs, or blogs, which is also integrated with the company's Blogger publishing tool. The Blog Search uses RSS feeds to index blog content, and Google says it intends to include as many blogs as possible, including those in foreign languages.
"Whether you're looking for Harry Potter reviews, political commentary, summer salad recipes or anything else, Blog Search enables you to find out what people are saying on any subject of your choice," Google says. Soon the company will offer a form for bloggers to manually submit their site, if it isn't automatically picked up.
