Two new search technologies, or really just new sites, popped up in the past week. One is a new entry, the other is a new feature from a large player.
1) Google Blog Search.
Just like the name says, it’s a blog search from the industry leader. Works well, but my blog is so diverse (and so vastly different from my domain name) that I get better indexing (not faster, but more targetted) from Technorati.
Loomia is a vlogging, podcasting search engine that’s just getting started. I don’t do much of this kind of content, but I digest some now and again. Nate’s Bicycle Sidewalk is nowhere to be seen, however. Bummer.
Google wins this round, but only slightly. I like the Loomia interface, but the index needs to get broader and better. Maybe if I get that invite to Flock, I can comment on it’s ability to find fun, new blog/vlog/podcast/link content. Any help guys?
UPDATE: You can find Nathan’s vlog on Loomia.
UPDATE III: I’m getting traffic to this blog via the Blogger Blog Search Beta. Check it out.
