How To Add Search To Google Reader

Google Reader Search

I’ve always found it odd that Google Reader has no search functionality. With search being Google’s bread and butter it is beyond me why their feed reader doesn’t have even the most basic search capability.

After looking for a solution, the best I could come up with is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox. It’s options are fairly basic and the results aren’t displayed in the most elegant manner but it works. And right now it’s better than the alternative which is no search at all.

Greasemonkey is a must have extension for Firefox. If you don’t already have it installed you can grab it from here.

Then all you’ll need to do is download the Google Reader Search script, and you’ll be set. The next time you visit the Google Reader page a box will appear at the top of the screen, like in the picture above, and you’ll be able to search through your feeds.

  • This is good news for me. Google Reader’s lack of a search box was my biggest complaint. Now I’m happy.

  • I have been thinking it for a long time. It’s nice to know about the GM script that does the job. Thanks for the find.

  • I ditched Google Reader when I was overwhelmed with too many articles. It was too hard to sift for the relevant information and as you said above, there wasn’t a search feature.

    I switched to illumio (www.illumio.com) and have saved oodles of time because…illumio keeps track of what you’re interested in and then alerts you to new feed articles that match your interests. So instead of sifting through 300 to 400 articles a day, illumio delivers 20 to 30 articles a day. Love it!

    Try it and let me know what you think.
