Inspired by Ted Tjaden’s custom search engine that principally queries Canadian law firms, I’ve put together a Google Custom Search Engine for Canadian law blogs. The engine queries only the 249 blogs which are currently on the Canadian law blogs list maintained by Steve Matthews at lawblogs.ca.
As I explain on the page, because Google doesn’t let you rank your CSE results by date, I’ve given you the option of looking at results from the past day, a week, a month, or year.
What would make this really useful, of course, would be an RSS feed for your search; Google doesn’t offer that option, but I’m working on ways to get at it.
Please let me know if you have suggestions or comments.
It’s been suggested others might like to put the search box on their websites, so I’ve created a more portable version and have spelled out the code for it on the search engine page.
