metafilter sites: now with google custom search! October 24, 2006 9:41 AM   Subscribe

Google Custom Search came out today. Here's a test search across all sites. Apparently you can refine it by hand and I opened up the ability to do that to others. I don't know if this is any better than a regular search with site:metafilter in the string, but I figured it's worth trying out to check.

You'll want to add refinements.

Some suggestions:

"Posts by this user"
"Comments by this user"
"Ask Metafilter"

etc, etc.

I could think of lots of ways to make it better.

I added subsite search refinements.

The Yahoo! equivalent from two months ago.

A search for "Man Bear Knife Fight" gave this as the first result. I'm happy.

I did a my own custom dance music MP3 search.

It did the major online stores I can think of. I'll probably add vinyl search tonight.

In the meantime, you can search for tracks from metafilter's own Chris Micali.

(no, I don't have any ads up there, so i'm not making money, just made it for my own personal use)
