Google Reader

Posted on June 28, 2007. Filed under: feed aggregator, google, rss, technology, web 2.0 |

Within Google Reader it is possible to ‘star’ your favourite items and to then view your list of starred items; it is also possible to add tags to items and then browse them. Unfortunately it is not possible to search for items within Google Reader. So that item that you had thought to be fairly insignificant but have now realised is relevant to your current work is very difficult to find. Do other RSS feed aggregators allow searching?

It is a bit of a kludge but you can search the feeds you subscribe to in google reader using a google customised search and a grease monkey script. It is relatively simple but somewhat convoluted, for instructions on how to set one up see: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2006/12/script-for-google-reader-search.html.

Give me a shout if you have any problems installing it

Lara has just emailed me to say that Google Reader now has a native search box – hurrah – at last!
