Google rolls out search filter options

Google Search Options
Google has rolled out a new "search options" feature that lets you filter search results. When you conduct a search on Google, all you have to do is click the link near the top of the page that says "Show options" to bring up a list of filters on the left hand side of the screen. You can filter results by type (videos, forums, reviews), time (past 24 hours, past week, past year, or adjust the search results to display a few images or additional text.

You can also change the view to include a timeline plotting pages based on dates contained in the web pages, or by including related search terms at the top of the page. There's also a "Wonder Wheel" option which presents you with links to related web pages in a sort of brainstorming/mindmapping format where each link leads to a new set of links.

You can find a video demo of the new search options after the break. At a Searchology event yesterday, Google also demonstrated several other upcoming features including the ability to synchronize desktop and mobile searches, and plot data from search results in charts. For example, searching for "small dogs" would return a chart showing dog breeds, sizes, and so on.
