Google Blog Search is GONE ?

Just now, it no longer works http://www.google.ca/blogsearch

404. That’s an error.

The requested URL /blogsearch was not found on this server. That’s all we know.


According to this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Blog_Search
"On May 26, 2011, Google announced that Google Blog Search API would be deprecated, along with several other APIs.[8] As per the deprecation policy, Google Blog Search will be shut down on May 26, 2014."

I don't have anything to help with finding blogs themselves, but this method finds hosted links from blogs instead.
It's a useful line of search script that you just copy & paste into your browser.
You then change the word 'subject' to that of the band and/or album you're looking for and it throws up all the matches for you.
See pix:

If there are several links it's great, because you can use the link from your preferred host.
You may still encounter the odd dead link, but it works pretty well overall:

Happy hunting.

If I want to find something on blogs, I usually just add site:blogspot.com to my Google search
