Google CSE Adds UI Sorting and Filtering

For those using Google’s Custom Search Engine service, a recent post from Google announcing new features will be of interest. By utilizing these instructions, and making a small change to your on-page web code, you can now enable both date and relevancy sorting for your collections.

If you’re using any kind of structured data or rich markup — extra classification on “site search” functionality, for example — you can also engage filtering by attribute to restrict the search results even further.

It’s great to see that Google hasn’t been forgotten their CSE web service. It’s easy to use and very flexible. The fact that it’s being improved on and moving forward… even better!
