    Google has been doing this for a very long time indeed.

    Hi Barry,

    Since I still have all search filters and use them sometimes for research, I saved the direct URL strings, so I will have them after Google pulls the plug on my filters.

    Will share here for you and anyone else that may find it helpful to still filter by those parameters.

    Blog search: https://www.google.com/search?q=key+phrase&tbm=blg

    Discussion search: https://www.google.com/search?q=key+phrase&tbm=dsc

    Video search: https://www.google.com/search?q=key+phrase&tbm=vid

    The Places search filter actually disappeared several months ago, but you can still get it with the URL string below. (However it’s totally different than it used
    to be and does not mirror the main search results ranking order.)

    Places search: https://www.google.com/search?q=key+phrase&tbm=plcs

    Sucks when Google takes something away and you wish you’d known so you could save the feature for future use. Now you have it. ;-)

    EDITED TO ADD: The URLS got truncated so mouse over or click through then bookmark the URL for future use if needed.

    I type in “credit unions” and it offers “Flights” in the filter, which takes me to assistance in booking flights. Whaaaaa?

  • Sarah Snyder

    I don’t get why Flights is one of the categories.

    One more question does this work via gmail login?

    Shit and I thought that there is some problem in my system and I formatted it.
