Blog Searching on IceRocket.com

Ok, this is a shameless plug, I will admit it. If such things turn you off, read no further.

If however, you are interested in what is happening in the blogosphere, then read on.

At IceRocket.com, we have just completely rewritten and reindexed our blog searching ability so that we now reach more than 10mm blogs. That right, with every portal nowwith their own blog hosting offering, we have passed the 10mm mark.

If you have an interest in what the Bloggers of the World are saying about you, your team, your family, your favorite celeb, breaking news or any topic that comes mind, we are easily the best way to find out.

Not only can you easily search for key news topics like “The Pope’s Funeral” to find out who is there, what they are seeing and saying…or get the latest news on the “MGM vs Grokster Case“, you can also celeb hunt and or even find out what people are saying about your fave TV show, your soon to be favorite movie Enron – The Smartest Guys in the Room (premiering April 22nd) or about you!

In addition to covering every inch of the blogosphere, if you have a search you use repeatedly and want to keep up to date, we allow you to subscribe to the search and add it to My Yahoo or your favorite RSS reader.

I use this to keep up with stocks – bloggers often have better information than stock analysts. I use it to find out what people are saying about me, the Mavs and my other businesses, and to keep up with the latest technology from tech bloggers.

Check it out and let me know what you think. We continue to work hard to make it a great resource that everyone can use. And while you are at it, check out our websearch (with RSS feeds as well), and our image search (whichI think blows google’s away).

  2. I’m handrolling an html page, using anchors and permalinks to “Save as” archived pages, with name=(anchor) in the headline links. Technorati can read and archive my posts.

  3. What I see is different flavors of DOS being copied over and over again. When will the Windows 95 of web search come out? (People out there have read Machiavelli, right? So hard to count how many times the Italian equivalent of ‘prudence’ has been written in his books.) Good luck!

  5. Good boat cover Even now that I know the name, I have no emotional connection to it (both Google and Yahoo are fun to say and bring positive images to mind), and worse, Ice Rocket is a turn off because it reminds me of war and nuclear bombs, and I dislike both.

  12. Ice Rocket won’t make it in the search market with that name. At most it’ll be a small time player. I wanted to try it today, but for the life of me I could not remember the name, so I went to Google and searched for “Mark Cuban and Search”. Even now that I know the name, I have no emotional connection to it (both Google and Yahoo are fun to say and bring positive images to mind), and worse, Ice Rocket is a turn off because it reminds me of war and nuclear bombs, and I dislike both. Or many it is something Austin Powers would say (as in one Swedish made * enlarger pump. Oh yeah baby. Oh behave.). In a number of movies, they have referenced both Yahoo and Google, but I can’t see how Ice Rocket can be marketed to the general pop. Did you ever hear what Enron’s first choice for a name was, and why they changed it (hint: enteron)😉

  14. Mark, when will IceRocket spider its own results? It seems to rely mainly on Alexa. I like the fact that you invested in a search engine but I would have thought that it would be it’s own entity instead of grabbing results from other engines like ask.com and other small engines do.

  16. This is quite impressive. I do a lot of blog searches, and so far IceRocket has the widest scope and most recent posts.

    I would love to have the ability to rank blogs by “influence,” a feature Technorati once had – where you can sort blogs by how many other bloggers link to them.

    Do this, and you will rule!

  17. I had been talking to Blake Rhodes about integrating our Streaming Video Search Ad Technology.

    We now have Wal-Mart and other Brand name advertisers ready to run a pilot. Can you re-connect me and Blake or have a look yourself?

  19. I think this is a good idea. There are hundreds of specialized search engines and many of them are not only very valuable to corporations, but also valuable to surfers who want to find what they’re looking for quickly.

    Blogs are all the rage and this search engine will allow people to find what they’re looking for quickly.

    I wonder if an entrepreneur will one day create a search engine for indie bands.

  24. Mark:

    I just happened to stumble across your blogmaverick site – my first blog read. As a stay at home dad who is trying to make a few extra bucks while “wifee” is in law school, you offer lots of resources that save this day trader time! After being directed to IceRocket for the first, I immediately felt like it was my first Gurunet experience . . . but better.

    Thanks!

  25. Mark, you are the best. A guy who bought a nba franchise and, you have made it a big team, and i like how mavs play basket.

    althoug i’m a knick and king i hope dallas will be a very big franchise because mavs like basket and play good, fast, and prettu basket.

    thanks from spain. jucargarma@hotmail.com

  26. Googled my company name ( Liftport ) and it came up with … our work blogs. Plus blogs that have linked to us.

    So .. it works. I’m not knocking the site, or the work that went into it but it’s like finding out a door opens up. You might notice, if you are a carpenter, that this particular door is well balanced, the hinges must be of good quality, and the strike plate is well mounted.

    But the mundane isn’t going to give it a second look. It’s a door, it opens. It’s supposed to do that. What’s behind the door, they want to know.

  27. Hi Mark!I’m a spanish fan of the NBA and the Mavs.What do you think about the spanish basket?
    Please reply my question in my blog or by e-mail.

    Comment by Cesar Hernando Navarro -

  28. MARK,

    I love the Mavs’ new attitude. This is what I’ve been talking about! You are the king of being quirky and being different so I have an idea. For the playoffs, make each Maverick a nice blue silk boxer robe to hammer into their heads that the only way they’ll win is with TOUGHNESS. I assume they can’t wear it onto the court, but they can wear it around the locker room before the game. When the whole team sees each other with the boxing robes on, they’ll get pumped up and they’ll bring that energy onto the court. WINNING IN THE NBA IS MENTAL, and this will only help.

  29. Cool mark, but one suggestion…change the name! IceRocket is a horrendous name. It sounds like some kids site. Much like my favorite search engine, Clusty, which also suffers from a terrible name. Just because Yahoo and Google have funky names doesnt mean a search engine needs to.

    Comment by Phil -

  30. Mark my words Mark – your maverick icerocket has created an avalanche ;-P

    Whether you are skiing at High Tatra Mountains or not there really is no such thing as Escape. There are only escapists!

    The news in the blogosphere is spreading like the good old Australian bushfire …

    Comment by Jozef Imrich -

  31. Hmm, if your blog search is so great how come it hasn’t found my super cool Hot Pockets blog?

    I kid. I applaud Ice Rockets blog initiative. I work with search engines a whole bunch you guys are really on the cutting edge with your blog search.

    Comment by Andres Galdames -

  32. I have been using Ice Rocket for a few months and find it very useful as the results are more varied. Archives and quick view are fantastic! Search times on the other hand are slow and the page designs are very close to another leading engine, causing me to confuse tabbed pages.
    The branding could do more do draw attention away from being another Goooogle, with out needing to be cluttered to draw contrast. It is a great product and I look forward to seeing where it goes.

    You are spot on with the research on stocks. A broker is only as good as the information they possess.

  38. I typed in “Celtics,” and the IceRocket is moving like a glacier – has this function been “farked” (so to speak)?

    It finally came up with “We didn’t find any Blogs containing celtics.”

    I know my blog is in the RSS directory and I would imagine that blogger has been indexed, any idea why my site wouldn’t show up?

  39. I’m not quite sure why it looks so much like Google, nor do I see the potential to compete with other search engines. What I see is different flavors of DOS being copied over and over again. When will the Windows 95 of web search come out? (People out there have read Machiavelli, right? So hard to count how many times the Italian equivalent of ‘prudence’ has been written in his books.)

  40. That is great news Mark. Glad to see that icerocket is ahead of the curve. I hope you get a chance to visit my stock blog. There have been times I have not agreed with what you have written on your blog, but overall your blog has been very informative and interesting.

  42. The RSS feed is a great idea. But hey, where is the option to get results in a different language? I’m looking for spanish blogs only and can’t filter out the english stuff. Are you working on this or have I just missed the option somehow? Thanks.

    Comment by Matthew -

  43. Mark,

    I have to say the whole IceRocket blog search is a great idea. Bloggers will love it. I have sent mine to Blake. I have been following that site since Ryan & Smit were working on that project. And I always recommend it to friends.

    Also, thanks for having us at the game last night – we were the Ghostbusters http://www.shumpy.com/says.asp up in the Painted People section. It was a blast! I always enjoy being at and watching the games. All the people that stopped us and we took pictures with told us what a good time and a good show it was. Keep up the good work!

    We’ll see you in the playoffs and the finals.

  45. IceRocket seems to equate blog with RSS feed.

    I’m handrolling an html page, using anchors and permalinks to “Save as” archived pages, with name=(anchor) in the headline links. Technorati can read and archive my posts.

    (Quite a few journalist bloggers aren’t permitted to use blog software on the news org’s heavily fortified servers.)

    No RSS feed, since it’s manual enough already without making manual rss entries for each item.

    When I input my blog’s URL, IceRocket’s response is “IceRocket was unable to find XML feed for this URL.” I offered a URL to a blog, never said it had an XML feed.

    Will IceRocket be able to index blogs that don’t use dedicated blogging software? Is it on the list, perhaps?

    You and your team are making things happen and it’d be great to hear about it!

  47. Patrick,

    I will update the blog several times this week. We have crammed an enormous amount of work into a small period of time, I have not had time to do anything. I feel you and you are right we need to let people know whats going on with us. Thanks.

  48. Mark … I’ve been hopeful that Ice Rocket can become a player in search. Part of that is updating your customers as to why Ice Rocket is useful, etc.

    I noticed something that is ironic:

  49. Nice entry! Last week I noticed on my counter that Ice Rocket had listed my little sports-related blog http://raise-the-game.blogspot.com on the first page on a Marc Cuban-related search and sent some traffic over. Thanks, hehe!

  50. Not sure what’s up, but the blog search is really slow for me (not returning at all). The other search tabs are working fine, but the blog tab isn’t working. Searching for “scrubs” at 2:00am pacific time.

    While reading Mark Cuban’s blog, I noticed the search engine “Ice Rocket” which added a few function to especially search for blogcontent. You’re able to search the web or specialize for News, PhonePics, Images (in cooperation with Google), MultiMedia and of course Blogs. It appears to be quite useful and …

  53. Great idea Mr. Cuban – But it isn’t finding my blog: http://www.chocolatefarm.com/webjournal/blog.php4
    How do I submit it?

  54. Cool, I found a couple of people that linked to my blog that I didn’t know about. I didn’t know about IceRocket before now.

    Comment by Difster -

  55. This is so cool. My blog, http://wheniamkingoftheworld.com actually shows up in icerocket. Which is really cool since the only trackbacks I’ve gotten are spam related. Oh, and a big thank you for http://hd.net. I just saw the show on the Metropolitan Museum and it was awe inspiring.

    Comment by Lee -

  56. Thanks Mark. I was already using IceRocket for web searches, mainly because of the RSS feeds. This is a great addition, it is good to see a major search engine recognizing the content of blogs.

    Comment by actionBERG -

  57. When I do a search for “Mark Cuban” – your blog isn’t on the front page. Its a great idea, but I don’t know if the results from searches are relevant enough.

  58. Thanks, Mark! I just replaced my Technorati search feeds with IceRocket. Well done, and thanks for plugging it.
