Somehow, since Bloglines (via its parent Ask.com) announced its new blog and feed search I have noticed my standard search feeds no longer return as many results.  I’ve checked via searches on Google’s Blogsearch and Technorati (not to mention Bloglines itself) and see no mention of this problem from others.  Has anyone else been experiencing Bloglines search degradation?

I sent a ding to the Bloglines tech support, which was acknowledged, but no real response as yet: 

I have noticed that some of my standard ‘Search feeds’ are no longer returning the number of results they did a week or so ago, by massively large amounts. Is this related to the new search function announced this week (which I like)? Or due to some other problem? (BTW, the ‘Search feed’ that most shows this behavior is "semantic web").

If anyone has an insight, I welcome your comments.
