TechChrunch reports on the launch of Ask.com’s new Blog Search facility, which is a spin off from its popular Bloglines service.
Of course Bloglines has always had a blog search facility, it just wasn’t very flash.
I’ve had a bit of an initial tinker with the site, and I’ve got to say, I’m totally NOT impressed. The blog search results are generally several days old, and although it presents them quickly, a quick comparative search of common keywords (including, naturally my own name) showed far better results at Technorati, and Gnoos. Of course any new service takes time to get off the ground, but with the wealth, and depth of indexing they have at Bloglines, I guess I would have expected a bit better for their initial launch.
