Supposedly any hour now, this is going to go live
[blogsearch.google.com...]

The FAQ is currently available:
[google.com...]

We'll see how well they do against blog spammers... (and spam bloggers!)

Wow it looks like old-school classic google layout.
I kinda miss that style!

Whats with the huge spaces between each result?

Very beta...

Huge spaces? One single line is all I see between.

Might be a firefox issue? What browser you using?

Oh I guess it's my google-preview extension goofing up.
I am sure the author will release a fix shortly...

Hope this catches on, I'm #1 and all over the serps for my topic..

Explains why google has been pounding my rss feeds, which show up as 'unrecognized format' in a regular google search

In our industry, the Google Blog search results are nonsensical. Technorati & Blogdigger destroy these results.

I agree completely. The FAQ suggests searching for Harry Potter reviews and several of the top 10 results for "harry potter" are sexually explicit (let alone it doesn't include any of the top Harry Potter fan sites - all of which have RSS feeds).

Same here. However it needs education from the side of the searchers.

They could get a hat trick if the did a RSS feed search!

Does this mean that blog entries will eventually be removed from, or given lower weighting in, the main index? Hmmm...

Are we taking bets on how long it takes them to put in the adds?

I'm sorry, but this [google.com] is complete and utter spam.

Can anyone provide an example of good results?

Ouch!

I wouldn't want to own that site for much longer with all the spammy and adsense tricks on!

hmm, site: doesn't appear to work, but searching for the full name of my weblog gets near enough. :)

Have I mentioned how much I hate the term "blog"? Reminds me of a slang term for a toilet.

Edit: Ah, it's "blogurl:" instead! :)

Hi all
There was a time when Google used to punish Bloggers
for their spamming . But what the current Scene is?
Any one have some idea about the Google's current reaction , to these bloggers
or how google will restrict Spammer in future ,to take entry through BLOGS?
