Techmeme Search finds "items", i.e. blog posts, news stories and tweets, that have appeared as headlines on Techmeme. Items listed only in the "More" areas are excluded from results.
By default, only the title and first few sentences are searched. Unchecking "Search title & summary only" extends the search to the full body text.
Quoted phrases, wildcards, and standard search operators like + (plus), - (minus), AND, OR, NOT, and parenthesis are all supported.
Narrowing searches based on url, author, date, and other attributes is also possible. For instance, the query [ Streisand sourcename:Techdirt ] restricts searches for "Streisand" to items from the blog "Techdirt". Examples of other operators follow:
|sourceurl:http://www.theverge.com/||items from the blog http://www.theverge.com/|
|sourcename:"New York"||items from blogs with "New York" in the name|
|date:10/20/11||items that appeared on 10/20/11|
|date:[10/1/11 TO 10/20/11]||items appearing between 10/1/11 and 10/20/11|
|author:"Bill Gates"||items by author "Bill Gates"|
|title:unsubstantiated||items with "unsubstantiated" in the title|
|body:"severely polluted"||items with "severely polluted" in the body|
|link:http://www.marco.org/2011/04/16/rumored-apple-hdtv||items linking to http://www.marco.org/2011/04/16/rumored-apple-hdtv|
Note: all operators that take urls will accept simple domain names, which match any item at that domain, or complete item urls.
