New from Google: Search Refinement by Location

Something new has been added to the "Search Result Options" panel located on the left side of a Google search results page. The new option released today is named, "nearby."

Matt McGee on Search Engine Land writes (also includes screen caps):

After doing a search and opening the “Show Options” panel, you’ll see a new link labeled “nearby.”

Clicking that link leads to a few refinement options: You can use the default location Google has for you, or type in a custom location for your search. The other option is to select between City, Region, or State-level searches.

More from Matt (including example searches) on SEL along with even more examples from the Official Google Blog.
