Technorati alternatives

Technorati seems to be less and less accurate and comprehensive. Are there better alternatives for searching blog content?

Google Blog Search?

Response by poster: Alas, Google Blog Search is overwhelmed with splog results.

I use Google Blog Search, IceRocket, Sphere, and used to use PubSub in addition to Technorati, though lately they seem to be nonfunctional. Yahoo has a news/blogs search as well, as does MSN, and services like Intelliseek's BlogPulse offer more professional blog searching tools. And many people find the search built into Bloglines to be pretty effective; That's what powers Ask's blog search.

I haven't used the newish Bloglines search too much yet, but it seems promising. Not only can you do a general blog search, but if you have a Bloglines account, you can search within your feeds.
