Google has added new features to its Search Options, including the ability to search for results posted in the last hour, and focus on shopping sites.

New search filter options include:
– Past hour
– Specific date range
– More shopping sites
– Fewer shopping sites
– Visited pages
– Not-yet-visited pages
– Books
– Blogs
– News
Users can try the features by running a Google search and clicking “Show options” below the logo.
The Past-Hour option suggests Google is taking a leaf out of Twitter’s book and using ongoing conversations on the web to identify popular topics as they arise.
Meanwhile, the More/Fewer Shopping Sites will give Goolgle greater appeal amongst advertisers looking to reach purchase minded searchers.
