Advanced Search for Google News

You can now search Google News with more options. Dig through articles by news source, location, or date.

“Mountain View-based Google considers the advanced search feature, announced Monday, to be the most visible change to its news section since introducing the service last year. Google’s online newsstand covers 4,500 English language sources, up from about 4,000 sources 10 months ago.”

The advanced search seems to be only for the US-market at the moment. You cannot look for articles by e.g. Spiegel Online, one of the most important German online news sources. There’s no radical new advantage to this advanced search, since you could already use a Google-search with a site-restriction to cover articles from a certain source. But this wraps it up in an easy-to-use interface. The next step should be a completely personalized front-page. And easy printing for a collection of top stories from one of the different topics.
