WordPress.com’s New Search

With millions of blogs on WordPress.com, it can be hard to find exactly what you are looking for, but Joseph Scott has put up a post announcing the launch of the new WordPress.com search that allows you to quickly and easily search all of the blogs on WordPress.com.

Search results can be ordered by relevancy, our magic secret sauce algorithm that’s the default, or by most recent, so you can see the latest and greatest on any given subject. International communities are very important to us, so from day uno we have language-specific engines for every language we support. For example, Spanish search is at es.search.wordpress.com.

To assist in your exploration we analyze related tags based on your search terms, with the most popular related tag at the top.

For those who want to keep up to date with changes to the search results, just subscribe to the RSS feed of the results (at the bottom of the related tags section).

It looks like it could become a very efficient and effect search tool for WordPress.com blogs, and makes me wish, once again that there was some way of the WordPress.org community could be included.

The new search is powered by the open source application Hounder from Flaptor and you can read more about it on WordPress.com’s blog.
