MSN Search has reportedly made efforts to amp up its searching within RSS and Atom feeds, with two new commands for feed searching.

Robin Good reported that Brady Forrest of Microsoft Search sent an email, which told of the new commands and their functionality. Robin included a sample from the email in his article:

“We pushed out two new operators last week.:

  • Feed: will return any RSS or ATOM documents that contain your query terms
  • Hasfeed: will return any site that links to an RSS or ATOM feed and returns for your query term.
  • You can now search for feeds without doing a complex series of OR’s with the terms RSS, ATOM, and XML.”

    Danny Sullivan takes a closer look at the commands in a post on the SearchEngineWatch blog, and shares a few examples.
