What's Wrong with Google Blog Search?

[Editor's Note: This is really geeky and non-bloggers probably won't care about it. Feel free to ignore and move on.] Very happy to finally read someone complaining about Google's blog search RSS feeds. As of a few months ago, they started updating every time someone who linked anywhere on their homepage added an entry. What this means for us bloggers is that you get an update every time someone who has you in their blogroll writes a new entry. I know it must sound like a dumb complain, but it's actually super annoying. For those of you feeling the pain, this seems to be the only Google response: "We do expect to fix the problem you're seeing. We'll use the full page content, but exclude the content that isn't really part of the post. I'm not sure if we'll be able to make the change before the end of the year, but we are working on it and are pretty confident that it can be solved." (Apologies again for all who found this boring, will get back to more interesting topics ASAP.)
