The joke's been made before, but this site sounds like metametafilter. Y'know, a few more sites like this, that index multiple blogs, and you'll have to create another level that searches blogs that index the blogs that collect information from around the web. I wonder how deeply recursive we could go with this... ?

Bummer they don't seem to index the blog portion of the code, they're merely scraping whole pages. If I search for my URLs, I find results in sidebar links on others' sites, which isn't as interesting if it was searching the posts for those URLs (people talking about or linking my sites).

I hope Blogdex or weblogs.com or someone else gets this right someday -- someone needs to create a central service that scrapes content between timestamps, so no interface links or navigation links, just the stuff in posts. It could be a central place to search Blogger blogs, greymatter blogs, and home-rolled CMS blogs, for timely info and links.

Blogger returned the search page finally, but it doesn't seem to be searching for URLs very well. Also, since a lot of people have moved off Blogger for other services, you don't get to search any of their sites.
