Google Custom Search for Data Storage

There has been a lot of talk in blogosphere about Google Custom Search. See Google Co-op Launched, Google Custom Search engine - with ads, Google's new personalized search engine talk of town, Roll your own Google Search.

Using Google Custom Search, I created a custom search for data storage information. The Google custom search box for data storage information is displayed just below the title block on my blog.

Data Storage Specialized Search

The data storage specialized search is started with 154 links and 3 categories: Bloggers, Media, and Vendors. Incorporating relevant storage links in to this search engine is a continuing effort and your help is greatly appreciated.
  • Would you like to include your storage links and categories? Email me with your suggestions for relevant storage links and categories.

  • Would you like to include data storage specialized search on your web page? Email me a request for the code.

  • Would you like to be active contributor? Email me with your contact information - email address, phone number, location and affiliation. You will be added as a contributor volunteer to data storage specialized search. The contact information is only requested to filter out suspicious requests.
Join this effort and let's make this search engine for all things storage.


  1. Heh, you beat me too it, this was on my list of things to do!

    Do you have a list of sources that the search query is pulling from? What are the paramaters?

    I love that we can now have a more focused search that will have less spammy results.

  2. Jeremiah,

    Just did it to reduce your to do list! Feel free to use it on storage Wiki or anywhere else.

    I am hoping to make it a community effort. Let me know if you want a contributor access.


  3. I'll add it to the wiki, but we need full disclosure on what's in the roll.

    Do you have a list? Is Collaboration turned on?

  4. This is great Anil!!

    Thanks for setting this up!

  6. Thanks Josh and Jeremiah for the encouragement. Suggestions for improvement are most welcome.
