I've put up a new Google Coop for improving search returns on the Web. Please try it and if you think you could help me improve it, then volunteer on the page is:
http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=000322253789632297725%3Al0bvax91yz8

Feel free to feedback as to its performance... It is very much a work in progress.

Hi, I had never heard of a Google coop before this, but it looks interesting.

Can you give some idea of what a volunteer would do?

This is a very new technology that Google is developing, but it allows you to make search engines that you can customise.

So for example if you wanted to include: www.roadtogrammar.com you could add it as an important site.

The official help says, a volunteer or contributor would help by:

Contributors can add sites to include or exclude in your search engine and apply search refinements to them (see Refinements below). They cannot change the name, description, or look and feel of your search engine and they cannot access the code or make money features in your search engine.

By doing this together we can really focus the engine and make sure it delivers first class results for teachers.

P.S. You can also add the search engine to your site, by taking a look at:
