I’ve just been experimenting with Google Custom Search . Below are two custom search engines I created to generate searches for Planet Debian and Planet Ubuntu (for each Planet it searches all the blogs that are syndicated – and doesn’t just get the category that is syndicated). It’s interesting to compare search terms such as “selinux” to get an idea for how much topics are being discussed in the two communities. I’m going to set up cron jobs to update these CSEs as the Planet subscription lists change. Also it would be quite easy for me to set up a custom search that covers both Debian and Ubuntu, and other planets as well.
If nothing else this will save me from the problem of finding a blog post that has just scrolled off a Planet that I read.
