CLLgle - A Leukemia Only Search Engine


Andy, a gentleman from the UK and a member of the CLLForum and CLLCfriends came up with a great idea several weeks ago and I am finally getting around to add this to my site. He designed a search engine using Google gadgets that searches only CLL related web sites and Blogs. It is a work in progress and he is adding sites for it to search all the time. I know I have searched on Google before and have come up with unrelated information and now this will help narrow your results. I have added this helpful search engine link to my blog and it can be found over to the right, under USEFUL LINKS. Once there use it just like you would use Google. If you don't find what your are looking for, because it does only search a limited number of sites, then you can always use regular Google search.

NOTE: I had to edit this post because the search box that use to be here no longer works. You must go to his site to use the search engine. Use the link over to the right under "Useful Links" or, just click HERE

Here is what Andy has to say about this search engine:

We've picked the best CLL Leukaemia and Cancer information sites to sort the CLL wheat from the chaff. No more results from the Centre for Lifelong Learning or the Central Lancashire League. Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia Search Engine searches 24 sites, including: library.med.utah.edu/WebPath/TUTORIAL/PHLEB/PHLEB.html, pim.medicine.dal.ca, www.treatingcll.com, www.cancerhelp.org.uk, mutated-unmuated.blogspot.com

So go ahead and give it a try. I know folks end up on my blog through regular Google searches so if you didn't find what you wanted here, this tool just might get you where you want to go. (Oh, and no Andy does not misspell Leukemia. He uses the British spelling of Leukaemia.)

John.

I have unreliable internet access at the moment, but I'll sort this problem out ASAP.

Just so you know, this blog is one of the sites referenced by the Cllgle search as well.

I think I have sorted out the problem I had with results not appearing on the results page.

I think it might be possible to get the size of the google widget a little narrower to fit your page better too.

Andy, thanks for your help and getting that to work correctly. I think it is a great tool for folks who are searching for CLL/SLL specific information. I also was able to shrink it down to fit better.

It looks good. I hope people find it useful.
