Google has now released “Everything”. This is a new look to the Google we’ve all grown to know so well.
It’s a handy side-bar, which gives all of your search options just to the left of your search:
This is a search for “Chester VT bed and breakfast”. You can see the same results as always, but have the “Everything” sidebar to the left. I have the sidebar expanded to show all options. You can choose from maps, images, videos, news, shopping, books, blogs, updates, or discussions. Then under those, you can refine by time-frame, social, and even down to related searches, timeline and Wonder wheel.
A cool thing for our blogging innkeepers is that if someone searches for your geographic area and clicks blogs, you are likely to be found, like our friends from Inn Victoria:
As far as I can tell from various searches, this new sidebar has dome away with the “real-time’ results that we saw debut last year, as we can now click our “news” tab for the latest information. The “social” button is an enigma, I can’t seem to dig up any information about it, and no search I have tried thus far produces results. That may be something we will see in the future.
Try the new options in your Google search and see how you like it.
