Find Blogger.com bloggers near you (if you're in the USA)Sunday, January 01, 2006
[Edited 2 January 2006:] Now see this post, which has a much better search form
Thanks to Michael Bates, who kindly gave me the syntax last month, here's how to find bloggers who use Blogger and live in a particular US town or city, e.g. yours, using a simple search form.
Sadly I've not been able to get it to work for anywhere outside the USA, so of course the form below only works for the USA - I've not provided the option to enter another country as there's no point. [Edited 2 January 2006:] Well Truckspy worked it out. You can indeed search for Blogger bloggers anywhere in the world!
Also note that:
- State essential - you have to enter the state for it to work, you just can't enter a town or city without entering the state too (though you can enter just the state, without a town)
- No abbreviations - you have to enter the full name of the state or town, no abbreviations (e.g. Ca won't find anything, you need California).
A good way to kill some time looking up fellow bloggers living in a place near you, if you're in the USA! Here's the search form ([Edited 2 January 2006:] Well Truckspy worked it out. You can indeed search for Blogger bloggers anywhere in the world! Please see that post instead now):
I don't know how Blogger have chosen to order the results, and don't forget that though it says Results 1-10 on the results page there could be more than 10 results so keep hitting that Continue button if you want to see more results.
