There’s no way to search my website, so I’ve added a new TypePad widget to my blog: Swicki. Unfortunately, it doesn’t include my site in the search….
Swicki is new kind of search engine that allows anyone to create deep, focused searches on topics you care about. Unlike other search engines, you and your community have total control over the results and it uses the wisdom of crowds to improve search results. This search engine, or swicki, can be published on your site. Your swicki presents search results that you’re interested in, pulls in new relevant information as it is indexed, and organizes everything for you in a neat little customizable widget you can put on your web site or blog, complete with its very own buzz cloud that constantly updates to show you what are hot search terms in your community.
The federated search function doesn’t seem to be working correctly, but hopefully I can get it fixed and working. If not, I’ll switch over to Rollyo.
We’re in the final stages of completing an investment into a similar technology for the enterprise, so I’ll post relative to the Swicki search technology once the deal is finalized.
