Blogit Search improvements
Blogit's search feature has been improved and is now more comprehensive than before. Until recently, members were unable to search the name of a blog itself via Blogit Search and had to use a search engine.
You may now enter any word or phrase in the Blogit Home page search box to find results sorted by relevance or date for all blogs, blog entries, and member nicknames. As before, comments may be searched via the Search page.
The Search page is reached by clicking on the Search link on the top right of the Blogit website. Here, you can search all blog content including thousands of Blogit member nicknames, tens of thousands of blog names, over three hundred thousand blog entries, and over one-and-a-quarter million comments.
The Search page allows you to search via three different tabs:
- Blogs search includes blog names, the titles of all blog entries, and all content within those entries;
- Comments search allows you to search every comment on Blogit; and,
- Members search allows you to search Blogit nicknames.
Please make sure that you select the appropriate tab if you're interested in searching, for example, comments rather than blogs or member nicknames. While it may take up to 60 minutes for new comments to appear in search results, you can view the latest comments almost immediately via the New Comments link on the Home page.
Move over Google!
