Google Blog Search

googleWell, it was bound to happen sooner or later… Google has finally launched a blog-specific search engine (blogsearch.google.com) . I haven’t had a whole lot of time to play with it, but it seems to work pretty well. Apparently it gets the search information from RSS feeds and the help document points to weblogs.com as a good place to ping ensuring that you show up in the Google search.

If your blog publishes a site feed in any format and automatically pings an updating service (such as Weblogs.com), we should be able to find and list it. Also, we will soon be providing a form that you can use to manually add your blog to our index, in case we haven’t picked it up automatically. Stay tuned for more information on this.

I wonder if this means down the road a ways Google will be filtering their regular web to avoid blog posts.
