Google Blogsearch is no longer available. Google killed the blog search database.
I was a bit upset to find I was no longer able to search Blogs Only! It cut deep into my ability to network with other bloggers within my chosen niche. So, I set out to discover the hack, or fix that would get me back to the bloggers lists I grew to know and love.
Here is how you can still access the BLOG ONLY SEARCH through Google.
You can force Google to display the Blog search interface and search the Blog search database by manually adding the application for the search to your the URL section in your browser address bar. Use this link http://www.google.com/search?tbm=blg. (tbm instructs the the browser to retrieve a specific application from the Google server and blg is the designation for the Blog search.
You can also display Blog results by clicking the “Search Tools” button above Google News Search results, then click the “All News” drop-down menu and selecting “Blogs.” Although, this option results is a list that is not as extensive as those retrieved by searching the above-referenced URL.
I saved the above link in my toolbar for easy access anytime I want to search out blogs to network with and it works like a charm!
