>>Hi, I’m Nandu from the Google web search
team. Sometimes finding exactly what you need involves
filtering, refining, and further exploring your search results.
So we have built a set of options to help you do just that.
These options are available right on your search results page.
Just click on “Show Options,” whenever you need them.
Let’s look at some of these options in action. Say that you’re shopping for a digital camera
and you want to start reading a few reviews. Clicking on this option will show you results
that Google identifies as reviews, and even try to show you text that reflects the actual
sentiment of the reviewer. Some of our search options can also be used
together. If you wanted reviews no older than a certain
time, for example, use options like “Past week” or “Past year” to narrow down your results.
The search options panel makes it easy to switch between different types of content
like videos and dicussion forums. By the way, notice that you can always see
the options apply to your search in this bar. And if you want to go back to your original
search results, just click on “Web.” These options can come in handy to slice and
dice your results. Others can help you explore your search topic.
Suppose you are writing a paper on green energy,. For a look at how the topic has evolved over
time, the “Timeline” option will group your results by dates referred to on the actual
pages, and let you drill down to a specific year and month.
“Wonder wheel” gives you a graphical representation of related search terms.
Click on any node to get related topics, and keep clicking to explore your search or topic.
Notice that the results continue to update on the right-hand side.
Well, that’s it for now. We didn’t get to show you all the options
or ways to combine them, but try them out for yourself and check back often.
We plan to add new tools and improve the search options frequently to make it easier and faster
to find exactly what you’re looking for.
