Microsoft to create search site for Weblogs

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Microsoft became the first big Internet company Friday to say that it would create a special search Web site just for Weblogs.

The company said MSN Blogbot will debut in the first half of the year, along with MSN Newsbot, a search site devoted to news.

The service will not index all blogs, just the ones that MSN determines provide the most useful information, a company official said.

Several Web sites are already dedicated to searching blogs, including www.daypop.com, www.blogdex.net, www.popdex.com and www.technorati.com. Google indexes and provides search results for blogs, as does Yahoo. But neither company separates blog listings from their regular search results.
