Search Blogs box

  1. You really need to bring back the "Search Blogs" box on the top of the page. It's too much of a pain to go to google. When you go to google, even if you type in Word Press, or wordpress, you get other sites. It's hard finding other people's blogs without it.
    It used to be good. You type in the subject and go right to the blog. This way if I find a blog I like, I can add it to my blog.

    The blog I need help with is zapple100.wordpress.com.

  2. The easiest way to find a wordpress blog on Google is to type site:wordpress.com followed by a space and then the other search word or words you want.

    As for finding other people's blogs, if you want to find them according to category you can use the Global Tag page (now called 'Topics') here: http://wordpress.com/#!/topics/

    So, until and if they bring back the global search page (or tell us where it's hiding as, for all I know, it might even be here still, in its shell, undercover) maybe that will help.

    You type in the subject and go right to the blog. This way if I find a blog I like, I can add it to my blog.

    Having the tag links on posts and the tag links in the sidebar go to completely different pages is a violation of accessibility guidelines. The target of a link should be indicated by what the link says. It should not be dependent on where the link is located. Staff changed the way global tags operate to comply with the foregoing in August.

    All bloggers do of course must develop research skills including how to sudse search utilities.
    See here for the format for global tags searches.

    Below is the format for a Google search. Note there is no space following the colon. Also note that you can substitute any term or phrase for KEYWORD in the format.
    KEYWORD site:wordpress.com
