Google’s New Advanced Search Page

Search Engine Roundtable reports that Google updated their advanced search page. I can’t see it yet, so perhaps it’s still being tested or still being rolled out? Then new advanced page looks more structured and less complicated, as several “more advanced” features (like searching for specific Creative Common licenses, or SafeSearch) have been put into an expandable box. Hovering over the “tip” links to the right will display information boxes right on the page, according to Search Engine Roundtable. (And, if I understand the screenshots right, whatever search you construct using the various interface elements will be displayed as search query on top... though I’m not so sure about that part.)



On a side-note, Google excluded their advanced search page from being indexed, so even though it’s linked from their PageRank 10 homepage – among many other pages – it won’t show any PageRank.
