Lot’s of buzz today about the newly announced Google Co-op engine which lets you create a custom engine tailored to your website(s).
Pretty cool concept. I was able to create one for EdHolloway.com in less than a minute. You can try it here – Search Ed Holloway.com
You can also create a custom search engine constrained to a set of sites and keywords you may regularly search, a programmer for example, could create a search engine to their favorite coding sites, and have the ability to search just this subset of the Internet, without having to manually filter out unwanted results. It will be very interesting to see what sorts of sites start popping up around this technology – http://www.realclimate.org and JumpUp.com are two that Google is already highlighting.
Give it a while – cool stuff!
