Hey guys,

Google recently launched a new product called co-op. It allows communities to tweak and change the results of a custom search engine based on Google’s index.

We created a co-op search that only searches power tool forums in hopes that people on our site with questions about power tools will more easily find answers to their questions direct from the experts.

Additionally, we have opened it up so that anyone can go in and tweak the algorithm to make the results better.

Here is a result for the term predict miter angle. :)

Let me know if you guys think the Co-op search is useful and I am wide open to your feedback.

If you want to help edit and shape the Co-Op search, click the volunteer link on this page.

Adam

PS. As always, let me know if you find this post helpful.

PPS. Currently, we do not get any $ from the Google ads that are served in the Co-op. It all just goes to Google.

Interesting, Adam. I will need to research co-op more. It is on my watchlist but the time is precious these days.

Have your say...
