Lightbulb MUDseek Search Engine

It is my great pleasure to announce the opening of MUDseek, a Google custom search engine devoted to MUDs and mudding. Through this site, you can use the power of Google's full-text search with a customized, hand-picked set of hundreds of sites specifically relevant to MUDs. If your MUD's site or your favorite MUD forum isn't indexed, just use the suggestion box. Please let me know how you like it!

Impressive. I didn't expect my free MUD host or my MUD website to be indexed. Even SBI is indexed, nice.

I assume TMC forums aren't that great at being indexed?

[EDIT] lol I'm getting porn ads when I search for my MUD.

Should be, just about every thread is indexed in Google now, we upload a sitemap of changed threads to them nightly (automated of course). I show 5010 links into the forums - we only allow them to link to threads not specific posts, otherwise duplicate content flags start to kick in.

Three for three. Woot.

Yeah, doesn't look like it. I suspect that TMC's baroque design is death to robots.

Ha! Okay, that's amusing. If you would, please PM me the search terms that accomplished that...

Re: MUDseek Search Engine

I've had confirmation from Andrew@TMC that google cannot crawl its forums.

I believe he was using a combination of the following search terms:

MUD sex hookers Britney handcuffs Lassie garter Senator Craig

*snicker*

Slander. I referred a friend of mine to Bleached InuYasha Galaxy, and I know for a fact that nowhere in its content does Senator Craig appear.

Cool Re: MUDseek Search Engine

Latest addition to MUDseek: the ability for Webmasters to add a MUDseek search box to their Web site or blog. Get your own friendly, customized Google gadget search box to give your users powerful MUD-specific search. The more people use it, the better it gets, and as we've seen on the Internet again and again, having robust search available is a tremendous resource for any community.

Speaking of community involvement, I'd also happy to note that MUDseek has already jumped past the 400-sites-indexed mark, with no particular sign of slowing down, thanks in significant part to people's helpful site inclusion suggestions. Thanks to everyone who's contributed; keep up the good work!
