Wordpress.com search running on Hounder

by dbasch — 7 Comments »

Wordpress just launched a blog search service for the almost 3M blogs they host on the site. It’s powered by Hounder, the open-source search engine we have been developing at Flaptor over the past few years. We’ve been working on this for a few months so it’s great to see it live! It’s been a pleasure working with Matt and Toni to make this happen, and it will be fun to see how many blogs get indexed in the future and how Hounder scales to handle the traffic.
