Looks like WordPress.com got some more new feature love yesterday, as they added support for searching comments.
From the WordPress.com blog…
And have you ever had one of those blog posts that was good, but the real action was in the comments? The blog post is only half the story, it’s the feedback from everyone else that fills in the rest. To make it easier to find the second half of these stories we’ve added comment search to WordPress.com search.
It sounds like a tiny little feature, but there are times when the comments of a blog post are the best part, or at least really interesting. It’s nice to see small features put in place that have to such a big impact and how people can find what they are looking for. Though I wouldn’t suggest running a search for “lol”, “rofl”, or “lame” on more large blogs. You might still be sifting through quite a few search results.
