When I created a Delphi Custom Search Engine (CSE) I not only found it really useful but that it returned much better results than just using google.com. I’ve been playing with the same idea for C# and Facebook development and have created the following search engines including links to quickly add these to your browser’s Search Bar for Firefox and IE7:
This engine includes 26 sites so far and I’m sure I’ll be adding to that over time. I’ve only been using it a few days now and I can already see the improved quality of the links coming back.
Here is one for Facebook development. I really like the Facebook platform and there seems to be a lot of interest in application development for it.
I’ll be tweaking both of these as time goes on and feel free to ping me if you know of some good resources for either. Btw, Google Coop rocks!
Btw, please let me know if you would like to collaborate on either one. Same goes for my Delphi Search engine since I’m rarely using that one these days.
