Google expands search options

Google has expanded the search options they provide next to the search results. It added a couple of categories and took a step further towards real time search.

The changes can be seen when opening the 'show options' possibility above the search results. With the changes Google tries to stop Microsoft's 'momentum' in search.

So what changes are made?

First of all Google added books, news and blogs to the list of options, next to the already placed videos, discussion forums and reviews.

Google also allowed users to limit the listed results to information indexed within the past hour, taking the next step to real time search. You can also choose to search within a specific date range.

Google also added the option "Visited pages" which shows you the pages you've visited before.

Finally Google's users be able to choose whether or not they want to see more or fewer results geared toward shopping.

Not all changes can be seen in every European country straight away.

  • Good stuff! Any idea how long it'll take them to implement it in Google NL? The US gets all the fancy stuff way earlier than we do!
