Roll your own search engine
Create search engines using the sources you trust.

Works the way the personalized pages on Google or Yahoo! work but this time with the purpose of searching those sites. They also have a toolbar so that you can limit to your favorite sources wherever you happen to be. So if you want to the New York Times, Answers.com and Amazon.com in a drop down or radio button, there it is. They have a popular set of sources but you can also design your own - list all the sites you like and then label the group - what they call a "searchroll" You can also look at others' searchrolls. So if you like Rosario Dawson, then you can have a look at her Latino Issues roll which lists about a dozen sites of interest. Steve Rubel, marketing strategist, has created the Interactive Marketing roll which includes many really good marketing sites.
