In response to multiple "where do I find it?" questions Monday, we've added a FeedAdvisor search facility to everyone's dashboard. Enter some text to search for and it searches the entire Subscription Web for matches. These are displayed in subscription size order; you can then press a button to view the FeedAdvisor related feeds for the results, or preview the returned feed itself. This same FeedAdvisor button also appears on your subscription screens at www.feedblitz.com/f/f.fbz?Feeds so you can quickly see what FeedAdvisor thinks is related to your feeds from there. The dashboard search is deeper than the results placed into subscriber emails; the top 10 results are displayed online as opposed to the top 3 in the emails.
The online facility has been pulled together quickly in light of today's feedback and so is something of a work in progress - more work is needed on deduplication, for example - but I feel that it's of enough value now for you all to try out as is.
