I have read a bunch of blogs about your custom search engines, and have had the opportunity to look at your CSEs fairly in-depth. Some observations:

  • You generally get the idea behind CSEs. This is very good.
  • You could provide a very useful tool to the incoming analyst by incorporating multiple Web sites related to your topic. This is the real value that you are providing — knowledge of what Web sites among the millions on the Web provide useful, relevant, and trustworthy information about your topic. Given all that you know about your topic, it would be surprising to me if you had only 2 or 3 sites included in your CSE.
  • The other way to make this tool useful is to add the terms that would be used to search the Web for your topic. This is a bit trickier to use, but if it is appropriate for your topic, it can also be useful.
