Google launches Blogsearch (RSS Search)

Google today released there blogsearch beta…
It can be accessed in four ways


I’m a bit disappointment.
You can only sort on relevance and date.
And yes, you can filter with the standard ‘advanced search’ functionality.

The standard operators from Google work here to:

  • link:
  • site:
  • intitle:

Ans they added some extra operators for blogsearch:

  • inblogtitle:
  • inposttitle:
  • inpostauthor:
  • blogurl:


The weird thing is:
The search implementation didn’t work so good (as I expected) and the RSS implementation looks solid. I expected it to be the other way around…

A search for ‘scobleizer‘ doesn’t result in blogposts of Robert Scobe…
It does come with a ‘related blog’, that’s isn’t his main blog..
Some other searches i did, where not always resulting in the blogs that i was looking for..

And then then the RSS implementation. It took Google some time…but.. its here finaly.
They did it pretty much the same way as MSN Search did
You got at two options on the bottom of the page:
Subscribe: Atom (10 results100 results) RSS (10 results100 results)

It works.. And it does the trick..
I curious how long it will take to get this functionality in the normal Google search…
