Readability in Google Search

This week’s tip shows a new feature within the Google search engine - the ability to filter results by reading level!
It is very simple to do. Just follow these instructions:

  1. 1.Go to: www.google.com
  2. 2.Click the “Advanced Search” link at the right of the search window.

  3. 3.Enter the desired keyword(s).
  4. 4.Use the “Reading Level” pull-down menu to choose the desired reading level:
    Basic (easy reading)
    Advanced (more difficult reading levels)

  5. 5.Click the Advanced Search button at the bottom right.
  6. 6.The results page will show only pages with the desired reading level!

  7. 7.Click the links beside the bar graph at the top of the results page to switch to a different reading level. (See screen shot above.)
