All Blog Search Engines pointed by Wikipedia are LONG DEAD: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Blog_search_engines .

Is there any working today? I'd like to engage with the current blogosphere, but manually searching and ranking them is really a job that doesn't pays itself.

    You might be better off trying to "spider" blogs on your own, by finding a few and then looking at what they link to. I also find a lot of interesting stuff linked from, for instance, Hacker News.

  • @BrenBarn Wouldn't most outbound links be for non-blog pages? I'm skeptical that bloggers are indeed reading and blogging about other blogs. That's why I need a search engine: because manually searching for blog posts does not leads me to other blog posts. They are all scattered. Sep 21, 2022 at 13:43

I found one called Blog Surf. According to the info, it searches a hand-curated set of (currently) about 900 blogs. That's not a huge reach, but it does seem to be only blogs.

  • Great find this one of yours! "Hand-curated" seems pretty 'pre-Google'. But blogs are pretty oldschool too, so I'll take a look at it, probably contact them too, clarify some points about their service, etc. and I'll do a feedback here later. Sep 21, 2022 at 13:41
  • It was online on 14 Feb 2023, but is giving a "Server not found" message today. Maybe the last blog search engine died this year? Aug 31, 2023 at 0:37
