When I'm stuck on the command line, trying to figure out regular expressions, or the correct syntax for a command I do the follow
- Search Google
- Select Page
- Qualify Page is what I want and then bookmark using del.icio.us. The tags I use tend to be the same as search terms
What frequently happens, maybe days, maybe weeks later I'm doing the same thing. I repeat the process as its quicker than the 2 steps of seeing if I have something bookmarked already, and then searching.
The net effect is the value I obtain from del.icio.us is not as great as it could be. What I would like is a custom search indexes my del.icio.us links, then I could:
- Search using my custom search
- If any of my del.icio.us links match the terms in tags or content they appear first
- Content from the web appears second
The benefit of this would be that pre qualified pages bookmarked previously would be a higher ranking. I suppose its a personal page ranking system.
