I rarely find myself all that impressed with Google’s endeavors anymore. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I have a problem with Google specifically really, I just feel like it may have hit a bit of a slump… until I found this.

On the surface, creating a search engine tool would be about as exciting a rolling out your own toolbar. Cool on the first pass, but would grow old without a lot of control turned over to the creator. After looking into Google’s co-op search engine project closely, it would appear that it “gets it” – user control is key.

So how far can Google take this? Based on my use of its examples, this could really take your site search up a notch.
