By on July 31st, 2008

Feedly a popular Firefox extension for Google Reader has added a nice little feature, where you can see items from your feed subscriptions matching the search terms you used with Google.

    Hi Keith: thanks for the post and the video:

    One quick note: feedly only integrates results if there is content matching the query published in the last 7 days by either one of your favorite sources or recommended by the people you follow or your friend of friends. These constraints reduce the probability of the overlay to happen but when it does the result should be better.

    It also means that people who have subscribe to more sources and follow more people have a higher chance to see the results (trying to find ways to reward people who invest time in following and sharing).

    As mentioned on he blog this is one of tree experiments we are doing around search “mash-ups” and we look forward to listening to what people think and how it could be evolved to add more value.

    Thank you!
    Edwin
