blogurl:it will return only one result.
Check it out:
Search all blogs for FreshTags (no problems)
Search Freshblog for FreshTags (only one hit - should be dozens!)
It seems to apply to self-hosted, non-BlogSpot blogs too, as well as across different time periods (12 hours, day, week etc) and the RSS/Atom search feeds.
Even using a different option (eg "Freshblog in the title") seems to produce the same (solitary) result.
Of course, this means the Blogger Navbar is broken too. Not to mention Aditya's Native Blogsearch.
I haven't turned up any buzz on the interweb about it yet ... is it restricted to just a few blogs?
Anyone got any theories? It can't be the indexing, since the pages show up in a universal search; things just go awry on the restricted ones.
What blog search engines do people like to use instead? Personally, I've never had a satisfying experience using technorati ... there's gotta be something better out there.
*** Update ***
It seems blogsearch is back!
I'm getting normal behaviour now with all the variants (RSS, Atom), and for all the add-ons (NavBar, native search).
I wonder what was going on?
