Earlier this year, Google launched its search options feature. This is a clickable link on search results pages, which provides a list of options to let you refine your search by a number of different parameters.

Today the company announced that it has added 9 new options. Some of these you may already be familiar with, because they have been rolling out gradually for a while. Google says they will now be available globally (in English) by the end of the day.

New Search Options

The options include:

- Past hour
- Specific date range
- More shopping sites
- Fewer shopping sites
- Visited pages
- Not yet visited
- Books
- Blogs
- News

The options are pretty self-explanatory, but it should be noted that the past hour is the closest thing Google has to a real-time search option. At least, that is the closest thing they have to a clickable option. A while back, Ran Geva of Omgili pointed out that you can alter the URL to get results from within a minute or even within a second.

These search options are not the only new features for Google search results. The company also just announced that it is now featuring more forum links underneath forum-based results.
