(screenshot of my Operaised search widget)
Today there are 1282 sites and pages I added to this custom search. There are the most important sites and pages about Opera as well as some less known ones and a lot of forum and news pages (for latter I'm not sure whether I should add them in future but sometimes it are just some small details what I'm looking for). I added some not English pages - mainly German - which are displayed properly in the results if searched with an acccording not English word.
This custom search is really helpful for me as I don't get results about opera music or something like "works with IE5.5+, FF 1+ and Opera 7+ " when I look for something special related to Opera (ASA or Browser(s)). And there is no need to include the word Opera in every search :-)
Rijk made another custom search engine with Opera related sites and pages, which includes only the 20 most important pages: Opera Browser Info. See his related Blog post Finding info on Opera with his included and excluded pages in the comments.
As the much more pages in my Operaised search produce a lot more noise (useless results) there are four categories to refine the search:
Mobile&Mini - Devices - Customizing - Help - News&Reviews
Just click on the links on top of the search results to refine your search towards the topic you are looking for.
The name Operaised Search is similar to Shoust's blog named Operaised. I used operized before but I think using raised in the name is more precise and especially the full word Opera is in the name now.
I cannot provide a search form here in my Opera blog - at least I couldn't make it to work, only the code was displayed. Please use the links to the homepage of Operaised search or my Operaised search widget.
I hope you enjoy this search and find it as useful as I do.
Feedback is highly appreciated.
