New Google Features

Google has added some new features that will help you refine your results page:

Options
Here I did a search for coffee.¬† Above the results list you’ll see “Show Options”

Related Searches
In the options list, Related Searches provides optional search terms

Wonder Wheel
Wonder Wheel provides a visual of related or alternate searches

Clicking on a term expands on that term, narrowing your search as you go

Timeline
Timeline takes your results and places them in chronological order, either by the date the information refers to or the date of the information’s publication. (at least that’s how I’m seeing it)

You can click along the visual timeline to look at results from that time frame

Or, click on “Search other dates” to specify a time frame
