Searching Not So Far And Wide

Google's been bragging lately about how many Web pages its engine searches. A new service, Rollyo.com, is proud of how it allows people to search fewer sites. Rollyo.com--that's for roll your own--debuts a search service this week that allows users to keep a list of up to 25 favorite Web sites and constrain search queries to those specific sites. The lists, called "searchrolls," offer an effective way to reduce the volume of results from a keyword query, and are particularly good for building a vertical-industry or topical search engine. Rollyo relies on Yahoo search data.

Perhaps most interesting is the ability to share searchrolls. A person could, for example, create a list of news sites that reflect a personal political belief and share it with others to ensure they all read what they already believe. Or, in a more business-minded view, they could share with colleagues sites most relevant to their jobs.
