AOL retired its longstanding AOL NetFind service in favor of the new AOL Search in September, though the official launch of AOL Search actually comes later this week. That's to coincide with the release of AOL 5, where AOL Search will serve a major role in helping AOL users find things within their service and across the web with a single search.
I'm holding off on a longer review until after the AOL 5 launch, so expect it in the next issue. In the meantime, non-AOL members can access the service via the URL below.
Also, as I mentioned in the last issue, site owners who wish to be listed within the new AOL Search should ensure they are listed within the Open Directory and within the Inktomi database. That will cover you for AOL Search.
