Over at Blog Search Engine, we’ve announced that BSE is now again powered by Icerocket’s search technology, after a brief switch to Google Custom Search.
We are now proud to announce that we have struck a new deal with Iceeocket, and our search is now powered by Icerocket’s technology. We’ve found out that while Google is the biggest (and arguably the best) search engine out there, when it comes to blogs, it’s still best to use specialized search solutions. And you also get that warm, fuzzy feeling ™ knowing you’re partnering with fellow blogging enthusiasts.
While Google’s Custom Search functionality was, well, customizable, we found it limited in terms of focusing the searches on blogs. And so we found an opportunity to partner with Icerocket again, and here we are with them powering BSE’s search.
Now you might be wondering why search using Blog Search Engine instead of going directly to Icerocket or Google Blog Search or other blog search tools. Blog Search Engine’s value-added is its daily posting of a featured blog review, which readers can rate and vote on. So aside from being a blog search tool, BSE also has a blog rating and ranking functionality. If blog reviews are your thing, then you can also submit your blog.
