Google Custom Search Engine (CSE)

Robert Berkman over at the Intelligent Agent Blog has pointed towards a new Directory of Google Custom Search Engines.
“Well, these Google custom search engines are coming quickly now, and so what do we need? Yes, a directory of these so we can all find the right niche custom search engine for whatever research we’re engaged in.
There are several of these collections popping up now, but it looks like the most complete and comprehensive is CustomSearchGuide.com. And there’s even a “Business and Finance” tab to locate advertising/marketing; economics custom search engines and several more.”
Bob has created a Business Research Search Engine.
I’ve written a future column on custom search for Information Outlook. Watch for it in about 2 months.

  1. Stephen,
    You inspired me … so late last night I did it:
    The Librarian’s Library
    http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=015271347771663724636%3Acmwvisovdsg
    So far only a a few sites, and it has lots of kinks to be worked out. But we like some of the results were getting on test searches!

  2. WOW!!!! You’re awesome. I just tried a few searches on your test file and it’s so much better than generic Google.
    I am on a weird connection today but I’ll blog this. Keep up the good work. ALA should put out a press release on this as soon as you’re ready (good not perfect).
