SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- A new Google Inc. specialty search engine sifts through the Internet's millions of frequently updated personal journals, a long-anticipated development expected to help propel "blogging" into the cultural mainstream.
This has been a long time coming, but now users can search topics in all blogs or limit the search to the current blog. This also clears up a mystery for me: Why didn't the "Search this blog" button at the top of the page work, even though I had requested indexing from Google a few weeks before? Concurrent with this new development, a new button appeared with the title "Search all blogs".

I tried a small search using the words "ecclesia reformata semper reformanda", and came up with many hits, including my own entry. Your mileage may vary. Keep in mind that blogs may have somewhat of an advantage when it comes to indexing, but the hits I have seem come from other blogs as well.
