Google reveals new look for search, adds navigation features

Changes at Google

Although select users have been able to test the new look and new features since November, Google officially rolls out their new look to all users today which adds simple navigation features.

Google search now features “contextually relevant, left-hand navigation to the page.” The panel allows users to refine their searches according to content type, publication date and relevance. Called “Universal Search,” the panel suggests genres of results.

Other changes include a logo modification, color palette change, yet sticks with the comfortable user interface with lots of white space.

    I think the new search will certainly hope those of us who blog, as one of the options will be to search blogs.

    I haven’t really formed an opinion yet, hate to jump in and thumbs up it, then find out a hate it.
    But, when I was searching my keywords, it was fun to click, a year ago, 6 months ago. Now as a Realtor who optimizes for key words that was very quick to see your progress.
