Blog Search is Google's latest search tool and as the name already tells, it's focused on blogs. Google is a strong believer in the self-publishing phenomenon represented by blogging and they hope Blog Search will help the users to explore the blogging universe (also called blogsphere) more effectively and perhaps inspire many to join the revolution themselves. 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.
Your results include all blogs, not just those published through Blogger; but the blog index is continually updated, so you'll always get the most accurate and up-to-date results - and you can search not just for blogs written in English, but in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese and other languages as well.
Blog Search can be accessed from a few different ways:
- blogsearch.google.com (Google-style interface)
- search.blogger.com (Blogger-style interface)
- The Blogger Dashboard
- The Navbar on any Blog*Spot blog
However, the results are always the same, no matter how you get to it and where you've searched. The Navbar, however, provides two buttons: one to search the blog you are currently viewing, and one to search all blogs.
Zo use Blog Search, just type the word(s) you want to search for in the text box and click "Search", basically the same as you do with "normal" Google.
