Google BlogSearch goes live

Looking at this location from the morning, i found it went live. Read the complete FAQs.The search looks cool. It gives you the information of the blog, last updated timing and relevant keyword highlighting. For "CSS" it shows 81,139 results.The advanced blog search tab looks great, with the option of post dates, selected post timeline and by author. If you have a blooger account, the new blog search tab is visible in your Dashboard. Blogger's blog search is here.

My recommended features in the future would be,

1. Based on the keyword search, Google needs to provide something similar to subscribe with bloglines or My Yahoo!
2. With selective results, i should be able to build a opml list to be used in my desktop RSS aggregator or push things as a live bookmarks in Firefox
3. Like Pluck, Google can come out with a small web-based RSS aggregation application, and blogsearch results can be directly integrated with that.

For now, it looks good. The likes of icerocket will have a tough competition ahead for now.
