Google has launched a blog search feature, as it seeks to go head-to-head with archrival Yahoo in the booming blog market.

Google’s tool is designed to find listings beyond those published through its own Blogger service by searching blogs that publish feeds via RSS or Atom. The feeds are checked frequently for new content, Google said on its Web site.
