Google relaunched their service called "Google Blog Search" today, and I have to say, it's pretty hot. The service puts itself almost in direct competition with the popular Techmeme service -- with the exception that Google does it for everything, not just Tech news.

According to Google, they have adapted some of the same technology that Google News pioneered. In other words, Google Blog Search is now Google News for blogs -- smart.

Grouping [blogs] in clusters lets you see the best posts on a story or get a variety of perspectives. When you look within a cluster, you'll find a collection of the most interesting and recent posts on the topic, along with a timeline graph that shows you how the story is gaining momentum in the blogosphere. -- Official Google Blog

What do you think of this new service?

    Looks like the same old Google blog search. What am I missing here?

    I don't agree that "now it's useful". Google Blog Search has stopped working for me. See my blog post http://www.qaya.org/blog/?p=737.
