Google+ Search Results: Now You Can Filter By Location

Google just added a new search feature to Google+ that allows you to filter search results by location. And here’s how you do it:

First, perform a search within Google+. It could be anything – from sunsets, to football, to food and more. Once you reach the results page, click the “from everywhere” tab at the top of the results. There, just enter a city or a zip code to filter.

The location filter does a good job of targeting the specific areas that you want to browse. It pulls in surrounding areas as well – for instance, a search for “Food” in “Los Angeles” fetches results from the cities of Pasadena and Long Beach (both in Los Angeles County).

Of course, for a post to appear in the location-specific search results, the user will have had to tag the post with a location. This, at least initially, is leading to the location filters bringing up a lot of Google place check-ins.
