Searching for top notch content from the top bloggers? The 9rules Network has recently announced “Introducing 9rules Search: Member Content Plus A Whole Lot More”, their new 9Rules Network search engine service.
The new 9Rules Network search is pretty impressive. It searches only those blogs within the 9Rules membership, which is a very impressive list of top bloggers from around the globe. It sorts search results into four “groups:
- Flickr Photos
- YouTube Videos
You can search the entire network or use the category specific searching on each blog category to narrow your search. They use Ajax to speed up page loading and a few other neat bells and whistles. And if they don’t have enough content within your search, they invite you to search for more on Technorati.
The search page design is lovely, concentrating the information on the search results. Other networks and blog communities could take serious lessons from their efforts to create a distinctive and powerful group only search service.
It’s still new and I found that it still has a few bugs in generating search specific results, but it is a fabulous start. Well done, and congrats, 9Rules.
