You have to admire a company like Google, they never seem to stop. Fresh on the heels of the massive You Tube purchase, the search engine giant announced yesterday that they would be releasing a brand new customized search engine for its consumers. I’m just trying this out for the first time so the jury is still out, however, here is a informative quote on the subject, courtesy of The Financial Times.
Users of Google Custom Search Engine will be able to select the websites they want to be included in their searches, and add to this list in future by tagging websites they visit. Any searches will then return results just from that slice of the Google search index. Google also said it had created an easy way for users to paste a search box for the personalised engine on to their own webpages, so that visitors can carry out searches using their preferred parameters.
Search Engine Journal had some extended news about this release, and Darren from Pro Blogger has an intial review worth checking out. You can begin to create your own personal search engine here.
