Aug 08, 2006: UX Search Roll

Just experimenting with Yahoo!'s new Search Builder service, which allows you to create a custom search roll (yes, just like Rollyo). Here's my stab at a user experience search roll; please give those tires a kick:

Which sites does it search? Here's my list as of August 8, 2006:

Are there other user experience or experience design-heavy publications you'd add to this list? Please let me know and if I agree I'll add'em.

What I'd really like is a service like this that will allow search results and number of results per publication to be ported to another site in some flavor of XML. Does anyone know of such an animal? Free signed polar bear book to whoever does.

Here are some additions:

Also, how about adding some sites for special topics (though they might stray a bit outside the core of UX):
CMS Watch http://www.cmswatch.com/

ITI sites like:
KM World http://www.kmworld.com/
Enterprise Search Center http://www.enterprisesearchcenter.com/

Search Engine Watch
(or is that too marketing-focused?)

Good ideas; keep'em coming. Though Chris, I'm not sure if those are too specialized or not. Need to mull them over.

Hi Lou,

Please consider my blog, Experience Planner, for inclusion:


Regarding you query about republishing XML to another site; I had recently looked into this as well and discovered a tool called reBlog:


If you plan on using Wordpress or TypePad on the site you have in mind, reBlog have plugin's for those platforms that are good to go.

If you try it out, let me know how it works. I'm considering it still, but the purpose I had in mind is geared towards creating a network of blogs that might be better served by a service that FeedBurner will be offering in the fall. Its called FeedBurner Networks - it's not public yet, but one of their VCs have blogged about it here:
