Rollyo For Google - Create Personal Search Engines

Rollyo is a site that lets you create a personal engine. You define the sites you trust for a domain and this way you have high-quality results. For example, John Battelle creates a searchroll for Google that includes sources like: Google Blogoscoped and Search Engine Watch. The problem is that Rollyo uses Yahoo to deliver the results.

How can you create a Rollyo for Google? Easy:

Step 1:
Go to Google.com.

Step 2:
Create a list of expert sites for a domain and copy it to the search box like this:
site:blog.outer-court.com OR site:googleblog.blogspot.com OR site:blog.searchenginewatch.com OR site:googlesystem.blogspot.com

Step 3:
Go to the bottom of the page and click "Search within results".

Step 4:
Copy the location from the address bar and bookmark it to your browser, using Google Toolbar or del.icio.us.
