The Custom Topic Engine does not require you to do any spidering. It uses Gigablast's current web index, and restricts your search to up to 200 websites that you specify via a form input tag.
Webmasters that run niche websites can now easily create specialized topic search engines and add extra value to their sites.
Nobody else, to my knowledge, has such a technology as this so we are really excited to see what people think and what kind of uses they can dream up.
The press release is at [gigablast.com...] and the instructions are at [gigablast.com...] and Gary Price's write up in searchenginewatch's blog is [blog.searchenginewatch.com...]

I have my GIGA page up already, it works great!
I will have fun tinkering with the URLs included etc.
Now this gives me another page, one with some real benefit for my visitors.
Thanks Gigablast! - Larry

Don't quite think that is true, since I have experimented with a search product that, although it would require a little work, could do something similar. It would have to crawl. They say a common use, other than intranet searching is a topic centric engine.
I've been debating whether to launch a service based on the product flexible enough to provide a SiteSearch type end result through Topical Search.

This looks like fun. Thanks for participating here, I'll give it a try!
Is there a "branding" option where it doesn't automatically land at Gigablast?
