Technorati is “a real-time search engine that keeps track of what is going on in the blogosphere “” the world of weblogs.” It’s been my default search engine when looking for content specifically in blogs and not in other websites.
But now there’s a new kid in town in the realm of searching blogs. (This kid and his cousins are all around town!) The new kid is called Blog Search by Google.
Blog Search is Google search technology focused on blogs. Google is a strong believer in the self-publishing phenomenon represented by blogging, and we hope Blog Search will help our users to explore the blogging universe 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; our 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.
Will Google’s Blog Search be better than the well established Technorati? We need 79 votes, who’s with me!?
