Google Officially Adds Left-Hand Search Options [Search Operators]

13 Mag/09

The Google improvements we saw unofficially opened to some users about two months ago have gone official, letting searchers see timelines and “Wonder Wheels,” filter for recent results, and seek out forums and reviews.

Google’s honchos unveiled the new “Search Options” at a Searchology event, one that coincides with the two year anniversary of the Universal Search unveiling that put brief looks at images, news, and other Google-powered search results on the main page. The new Search Options, along with richer “snippets” underneath results that can show reviews and specially-formatted information, should start showing up for most users immediately, but further down the line are more interesting experiments.

Google Squared will show up on users’ Google Labs pages later this month. What is it, exactly? Well, Google’s VP for Search Products says:

Unlike a normal search engine, Google Squared doesn’t find webpages about your topic – instead, it automatically fetches and organizes facts from across the Internet. We’ll be opening it up to users later this month on Google Labs.

Finally, here’s a video clip showing how the newest Search Options change what you find when you’re searching around:

Do the Search Options change how useful Google is to you, or are they just (easily hidden) sidebar clutter? Tell us how you see it in the comments.
