Google Coop: Vertical Searching

Category: Google

Google has released a vertical searching product similar to Rollyo.

We tried it out by putting in a few Ajax sites, and creating an Ajax search:

There is also Ajax used inside the application itself.

For example, when you add sites to narrow the searching, an in-window modal popup appears. I actually found it quick confusing to know what to do here. I didn’t expect that ‘Add sites’ would do that. I think it would be a lot easier to just had a text box directly there that you add sites with. Also, in Safari clicking ‘Add Sites’ turned the page grey yet the popup didn’t happen so I was locked out of the page.

I see it as an opportunity to generate more revenue.

If you have a CSE created with Google Coop you can submit it to http://www.coopdir.com which is a directory that accepts only pages that contain Google Coop CSE.

I also made a nice simple coop but i also added some feeds to it.
So Photosearchr is a great way to find news and search fast for information about photo and digital editing..
