Google Blog Search Bug (Find Posts from a Blog)


Google Blog Search has a strange bug: it returns only one result for queries that restrict the search space to a site (like this search). Even if you select "More results", you click "Next" or add more keywords to the query, Google Blog Search returns only one result. Is this the version of "I'm Feeling Lucky" for searching blogs?

  1. Another strange thing: if you keep clicking on "more results from...", the number of results changes each time!

  2. I keep writing their team, asking why it's not working, and no response.

    What's weird is that it wasn't like that the first time I used it. It's a recent problem.

    The first time I used it, it returned too many results. (It returned multiple versions of posts that I had written, and then re-written, and it returned all of them). And then it just stopped working, and now only shows one result, even if there are multiple results in the blog.
