I’ve complained a few times about not being able to search in my RSS Reader, I use Google Reader…I know, ironic that it’s the search king.
Sign up at Google CSE
Create a search engine, just add one site for now
When you are complete go to the Advanced section, here you can add your Google Reader OPML file
Each search engine you create has its own homepage (you can open it up for collaboration, and you can add it as a widget to your startpage or your blog)
From here you can either bookmark this page (here’s mine) to your links bar or favourites or you can add it to your Google Toolbar…do this by a right-click in the search box (don’t forget to rename it).
Since the Google CSE doesn’t accept an OPML URL (it only accepts a file), I will have to import my OPML file every month or so to manually keep it up-to-date…hopefully Google CSE will overwrite each time this is done, as my updated OPML may not only have new sites, but also sites I’ve deleted.
Check the left sidebar of my blog under the heading “Reading List”, you will find:
- Grazr mini RSS-Reader
- Raw OPML of my Reading List
- Search my RSS Reader
- OPML2PDF of the latest posts from the my Top 10 feeds in my RSS Reader…max. 50 posts per feed
(this uses your first 10 feeds in your RSS Reader, but I put these 10 feeds in my Technorati Favourites and used the OPML of my Top-10 tag)
- RSS2PDF of the latest posts from my Top 10 feeds in my RSS Reader
(this is a spliced feed mixed posts river of news, rather than reading posts by feed…this time I used the RSS from my Top-10 tag)
- SYO network where I share my RSS Reader feeds, and who in the network subscribes to my blog feed
- OPML Memetracker of my RSS Reader feeds
