Google Adds Blog Filter For Search Results

google

Google has added a new feature to its search engine homepage which allows you to show results from blogs. This is not very different than Google’s Blog Search but now you can apply this “filter” right from the main page of search results.

Here is an example of search results in Google using the term “lowville,” my ancestral hometown in upstate New York (click images to embiggen).

Click on Blogs, and the research results will be filtered to show only those from blog posts.

In addition, if you want to show only blog homepages, click Homepages in the lower portion of the sidebar.
