To narrow your blog search, enter as much data as you can into the Google Blog Search Form to try to find the results you need. You can search for keywords and keyword phrases within individual blog posts or within entire blogs. You can even specify the exact blog URL that you want to search within if you're looking for information within a specific blog.

Furthermore, you can search by blog author or the date a blog post was published, and if you don't want results with adult-related content to be included in your search results, you can choose to conduct a SafeSearch, which will filter out such content from your results.

Once your search criteria is entered, click on the Search Blogs button on the right of the screen to view your results.
