OUseful.Info, the blog…

Trying to find useful things to do with emerging technologies in open education

Two Variants of Google Blogsearch?

Yet more signs that Google is losing the plot… Whilst putting together a quick Yahoo Pipes demo, I called up the Blogs search option from the More menu item in Google websearch in order to pull an RSS feed of blog search results from it… But there was no feed option?

Strange, because blogsearch.google.com does offer a feed option for blogsearch results?

So what we have here is a case of similar branding but different sidebar options. That is:

http://www.google.com/search?tbo=1&tbs=blg:1&q=%22yahoo+pipes%22

does not give the same sidebar options – or the autodiscoverable feed option – that this does:

http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch?q=%22yahoo+pipes%22

But the top left corner branding of each site is the same?

Just six words…

Don’t you think Google looks tired?
