Very interesting results blogged by Mukund Mohan about blog search relevance. He did a search in several notable blog search tools for “chris brogan” minus the quotes, and found less-than-stellar results. In the comments, you’ll see that I incorrectly recreated his search and did a little better, but it was still interesting to note.
Further, I feel that Google search, regular google versus their blog search, has really stepped up lately. I’ve been using that to find old posts when someone asks me for information. Yahoo and Ask aren’t so bad either.
So this is a shift from what I often advise people, with regards to finding relevant blogs. Should I be recommending straight up Google instead of the search tools? I’m starting to think so.
What’s your take?
