Searching forums

Do you think one day we'll see a forum-only search engine? By this, I don't just mean a search engine or directory which lists forums (many of which already exist) but instead one that indexes individual posts within each forum also.

The closest analogy I can think of is Google's offering that allows you to search Usenet posts, at http://news.google.com

Do you think Google, or someone, will one day come up with an equivalent offering for forums? I appreciate that the main Google SE spiders forums already but that's mixed in with the main SERPs and I'm wondering if there will be something for just forums one day. Nothing like this exists just yet... am I right?

Forums will continue to flourish IMO and I think this would be a great opportunity for someone if it's done right.

I am pretty sure that this already exists; I've seen it somewhere. I looked around, but I couldn't find it. I'll post a link if I find one.

I'm sure that Google is already working on it.

I do think that we will see major forum search engine in near future, but apparently, it is not prioritized today. Email search is getting much more attention, because email is much more widely used. Blog search is looked into because blog's content is, in my opinion, much more filtered. I'm just guessing, but probably forum is not as popular as email or blog as a platform to deliver information.

Yeah, but I think Aaron is talking about a World Wide Web search for all forums... Not sure how useful that would be, to be quite honest. (oh, and you can seach just this forum too, by clicking on the search button at the top of the page... hehe)

Yeah, that's what I meant, Tim. I think it could be very useful. So much so that I might do my own...!

Really? Interesting... I guess it would be a good way to look for information, and be pretty much assured you're not going to pull up a bunch of commercial pages... until, of course, people start using forums for their commercial purposes...

Yes, really. We've secured forumsearchengine.com for the purpose. It's on the 'to do' list but might not get attention just yet cos we're pretty busy right now.

I'll keep you posted, Tim. It won't be for at least a couple of months yet, though.
