How to find a blog on Blogger?

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Many blogging services and social networks allow visitors to search for sites and users hosted on their service by keywords or tags.

For example, those visiting Tumblr can search for posts tagged "Blogspot", or visit to search for posts tagged with Google.

Unfortunately, there is no built-in feature to find posts or blogs which are hosted on Blogger. So in this post I'll explain methods you can use to connect with like-minded people and find interesting blogs to read on Blogspot.

Using Google Custom Search to find sites on Blogger

In my opinion, the most effective way to search for a blog on Blogspot is to search the subdomain on Google.

For example, if I wanted to search for a makeup site on Blogspot, I could enter the following into the Google search bar:


Which will bring up a page like this:

Another way of achieving the same thing is to use the "Advanced search" feature of Google and specify "" in the domain name section.

The downside of this method is that it excludes those using a custom domain for their Blogger-based site.
