Two new searches were announced yesterday. Yahoo is adding blog search, not as a separate section but as part of their news search. The tool displays the blog searches in a panel, which can be expanded to explore deeper. You can save things directly to MyWeb from the searches. Tthe search results are currently confined to a targeted set of blogs whilst they work through the beta.
Chris Pirillo’s search, gada.be, is cool. Very cool. Simple in design, it pulls together results from multiple sources, displaying them cleanly in a list form. The key thing is that the search term can be included as the subdomain of the URL used, reducing clicks required and targeting this at mobile users. Even the domain name is easy to enter on a phone keypad. Nice – however displaying latest searches on the home page may not be the best idea without some filter, given some of the terms already on there.
