Sphere is a blog search engine for finding blogs and adding yours. Customize the search results to select the timeframe of the last posting for the keyword you're searching. While you have a keyword in the search box, click Related Media to get photos, books, podcasts and news items containing your keyword.
On the results page, Sphere displays only two posts per blog to avoid having blogs with frequent postings dominate the page. Click Profile to see a new window with details about the blog including average posts per week, average words per post and average links per post. On the detailed profile page, Sphere displays the outbound and inbound links for the listed blog along with Quick Facts.
Here are tips for searching with Sphere. A bookmarklet for finding blog posts is available from Tools. TypePad users can download the Sphere Widget to display up to six search results in your TypePad blog's searchbar. The Featured Blogs page doesn't have an entry as of this writing.
