Blog Search by Google

Google has finally released a long overdue Blog Search
. I don't know about you, but I have been waiting for this feature for about a year now and am glad that it is finally here. Why do we need a blog search? Simple. Blogs are a quick way to get a feel for what people are thinking on any topic. Just type in your term and whammo! You get blog entry after blog entry from people like you and me spouting their opinions. Try it for yourself. Search for "ipod nano
", the newest iPod, and see what people are saying. You'll get 17,840 blog entries of people talking about it.
Google is not the first engine to have a blog search. Before Google there were others who blazed the trail:
(20,319 posts about ipod nano)
I'm still not sure which blog search service is the best. I suspect I'll probably bounce between my previous favorites, Technorati (good, but often slow) and IceRocket, and I'll throw Google into the mix.
