Search within results link: gone but still alive1 Recommended Answer
I'd like to call out what bmpnorfolk mentioned in an earlier post: using Search within results often delivered more results than the original query. "How could that be?" you might ask. Well, it's because Search within results (SWR) didn't actually perform a search within the existing set of results. As I said in my first post, SWR merely allowed you to add new words to your original query. When the new search was performed, our algorithm sometimes returned more results the second time around.
I hope this provides a bit of clarity to you all!
Bring back the original.If it so much "the same" it should be a simple coding change.
Been through this with you before. Your way or the highway?
How about another search engine?
The results that I got from an earlier search is now not showing up. I want "search within" back.
I do history and genealogy searches and until today had the best experience and the most useful results with Google. Please bring back "search within" as even the advanced search does not have the same results one could obtain by putting a name in the first search and then using a series of dates, places and/or other names to get the results I wanted. I am so disappointed in your present product!
In your attempt to be like the other search engines, you have done away with one of the advantages to using Google! I am now searching for a new search engine. You assume that every name I search for now is for a live human with whom I want to social network - history - and I don't mean the computer's history is lost in the new Google.
When I put parentheses around a term to search I did not get
the same results that I got earlier today. In fact, one of the sites is the
same listed earlier, but the description does not even show me that term in the
context of being used on the website which is very important to know if I want
to click on that link or not.
Please bring back "search within." Maybe you need to highlight it instead of sticking it on the bottom of the search results. I recently showed someone how to use it and they were surprised at the results and did not even know it was there! If you failed to see people using it, most probably did not know it was there!
In my search for another search engine, I will check back from time to time to see if you reinstate "search within." Please, at least give us an option to use it or not.
Before, I could find just about ANYTHING on google. Now, with their "superior" in-your-face-whether-you-like-it-or-not searching, I can find nothing.
I used to be the one people came to find obscure information, and if I couldn't find it with Google, it probably wasn't out there. Now, I can't find anything.
Only one word describes Google now... Sucks.
