Advanced advanced Google search

The first return at Google for the query “google advanced search” takes you to a form where you can construct a more finicky search than normal. The Google help page for advanced search has some interesting operators, but not what I need. Limiting my exploration to (advanced search I could find no explanation of how to do this.

Grimmelman non search neutrality

David Weinberger

James Grimmelmann, whose writing on the Google Books settlement I’ve found helpful, has written an article about the incoherence of the concept of “search neutrality&# — “the idea that search engines should be legally required to exercise some form of even-handed treatment of the websites they rank. &# (He blogs about it here.)

Searching The "Small Here"

Steven Berlin Johnson

Search doesn't yet reflect those shifting definitions of where we are, the true radius of our interest. Yes, you can search a map at Google or Bing or on your iPhone--along with a thousand other directory sites. In fact, that kind of query is so dominant that it has become the standard definition of "local search."If If you're doing local search, you're looking for a dentist or a car mechanic. contains two search fields: "what" and "where."

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll.

Conversation Searches

Tony Karrer

What are Conversation Searches? During those presentations, I'll mention what are sometimes called "vanity searches." These searches look for any mention of your name, company, URLs across blogs and other sites. For me, these searches primarily allow me to see what people are saying in response to something that I've put out there. Typically, these responses come via blogs and twitter. In Twitter Search, I look for my name, site names, and tags.

The REAL real time search

Doc Searls

Blog search is mighty thin in Wikipedia. While “real time&# is heating up as a topic, real time search seems to have fallen off the radar of everybody other than itself. It begins, Web search, real-time search and social search. Hey, why not the search engines that have been looking at real time for the duration? Here’s IceRocket on real time search as a string.

Google Blog Search Fix Coming

Tony Karrer

As I reported in Google Blog Search Problems , Google seems to have included the full text of blog pages (including blog rolls) in their blog search. According to Jeremy Hylton of the Google Blog Search team , they now index the full content of the page. This means that not only do they index the full post even if the blog publishes a partial feed, but it means that they index the non-post parts of the pages as well.

Musing on Google’s Power Searching Course and marketing

Jay Cross

Today I completed Google’s Power Searching Course. Do I know any more about search than I did ten days ago? You can narrow a search by date. Previously I approached Google searches much like looking something up in an encyclopedia or dictionary. After the course, I treat search more as an iterative process. A pre-search can inform the real search. Or after the first search, I can add to the query to zoom in on what I’m after.

Twitter as Search Engine or Community Seed

Nancy White

The folks over at BrandonHall, the learning folks who blog lots of interesting links, pointed out a value of Twitter that not all of us may have seen yet. Twitter as a search engine. But I never really conceptualized it as search. First, I searched for something for me. But you have to have a question in mind to make the search meaningful beyond curiosity. I am not quite as clear about how searching Twitter as a one-off search can pay off.

Where Do Blog Post Ideas Come From?

The evolution of search will refine the spectrum of quality in media

Trends in the Living Networks

Search is not getting better, or it certainly seems that way. In the evolutionary battle between search engines and search engine marketers, the search engines are not keeping ahead, and crap content is finding its way into the top of search results. This makes search users unhappy, opens the way for alternatives to the dominant player in the Western world, AKA Google. In the context of search, if people find what they are looking for, it is high quality.
