Google the search engine giant adds an another update “Discussion & Nearby” to its SERP in its “Show Options” feature. Google always curious to change something in their features in order to keep the users with them and also give a better search experience to the users. Let’s check out the effects of these new features in Google search results.

1) Google Discussion

Google’s previous show option feature contains “Forums” to retrieve what are the conversations going on a search topic. Google now changed it as “Discussions” with more features than the previous one.

When a click on Nearby is made it shows the SERP based on the query by Google’s default location. An additional option “Customized Location” gives user to specify their preferred location based search also. Google also provides a way to narrow down the search by adding City, Region and State options in the Nearby feature.

These features from Google shows its intentions to make a more user friendly SERP by the way providing a detailed description about what the user is going to get when he/she clicks on a particular link from the Google SERP.
