Searching 2.0

Search 2.0 vs Traditional Search by Ebrahim Ezzy and Richard MacManus is the start of a series of postings on new search tools. It contrasts the early page content ranking to the link based ranking to the new specialized tools. How can tools like these make searching our catalog better? Can they help our catalogs?
