Google has registered domains again. *sigh*

This time it's something called Syndicated Search.

Garrett Rogers has more.

OpenSearch? I donĀ“t think so, Google will never do that.

Google Syndicated Search = Ajax Search API = UDS (User Distributed Search) = code.google.com/apis/ajaxsearc ...

Um.. Google Reader also has search.

It's at the top next to the Google logo.

<< Um.. Google Reader also has search. >>

But it doesn't actually search the feeds you've subscribed to in Google Reader – all it does is search for new feeds / content to subscribe to. Like Haochi, I've needed this service on several occasions and don't understand why they've not included it. If they'd just integrated Google Reader into Gmail in the first place, it would have been possible to do this from the start...

Yes, search within Google Reader is so needed! And second thing – starring in GR integrate with Bookmarks. And also search within bookmarked sites. I think that should be quite easily integrated features. And they would be so powerful!

One of the biggest things I hate about Google is lack of integration between products.

search within bookmarked sites is already there

I mean search within your subscribed feeds, not for "new contents".

I agree! It's not too bad though, I can live with it for now as I'm sure they're working on tighter integration. Although integration is important, they also have to make sure they remain open as not to become an "evil" monopoly. Although I think some of the examples are arguable this is a relevant post worth checking out – blogoscoped.com/archive/2006-0 ...

POI:

1) Bloglines allows you to search JUST the feeds you've subscribed to.
You can even search just the feeds of a friend or public user (if they allow it).
Screen caps:
mystuff.ask.com/public/searchi ...

2) As SearchDay points out,
searchenginewatch.com/showPage ...
the Ask.com version of Feed/Blog search allows the user to subscribe to a feed using Google Reader, My Yahoo, AOL, and other services. Not only Bloglines. The same goes for sharing with digg, del.icio.us, etc.
The openess is cool.

Bloglines and Ask.com share the same database but offer different features.

Garett does a great job (nothing new) in pointing out potential similarities
with OpenSearch from A9. As a librarian I can tell you that some people don't have the time or knowledge to start selecting databases. Plus, as been my personal experience, once you've select several databases you can then be subject with info overload. This is why I think that with this type of metasearch/federated search some extra info can be useful. For example the dynamic clustering available at
Clusty or FirstGovSearch.gov
clusty.gov
firstgovsearch.gov
You can even see the potential value with Clusty's job search using Indeed.com data.
clusty.com/search?input-form=s ...

3) I think the Smart RSS concept is really cool. Now, when a search detects and triggers the user might what extra, often current info, the results (using the syndicated feed) appears directly at the top of the web results page, where most users look. Of course, regular results are also present. More uses of this are to come.

Examples:
1) From a database suggested by the APWG. A search for phishing scams delivers up to the minute results of scams going around.
ask.com/web?q=phishing+scams&a ...

2) Up to the minute hurricane and tropical storm info
ask.com/web?q=hurricane+alerts ...

3) Recalls, for example from the FDA
ask.com/web?q=fda+recalls+& ...

4) New Science Books (from the National Academies of Science)
Btw, these books are free and available full text full image online.
ask.com/web?q=new+science+book ...

4) Of course, key blogs are also included. :-)
ask.com/web?q=google+blogoscop ...

This service grows each week with more new features and content.

I think Blog Search might become intergrated with the normal Web Search. So, whenever it finds suitable content from feeds, it will display them... in a kind of Onebox stylee!

It's "Syndicated Search", not "Syndication Search", so my guess would be you could setup a search, then create an RSS feed of the results.

New results would then appear atop the RSS feed, in the same way that News Alerts sends you new results..

Just my 2 pence..

I like Jayenkai idea. Shareable, savable, subscribable search would be... useful.

In any case, is this perhaps what the 'SSD' service visible (but links to Google Homepage) from the 'My Account' page relates to?

If so, what's the D stand for? Syndicated Search Directory? Syndicated Search Definitions?

Reto and Jayenkai, I think you've got it spot on. Well decyrpted =)
