One of the cool features in Google “Search Options” panel is Wonder Wheel, a visual representation of Google search results.

At the time of writing this post, Wonder wheel was not available on “http://www.google.co.in”.  In order to try this feature, navigate to “http://www.google.co.in” and press “Go to Google.com” link.

Another advancement is improved Google snippets. From now on Google snippets will contain more information such as stared reviews, number of reviews, price range etc. To provide these rich snippets, web master has to submit details to Google.

So what do you think about new Google Search Options?
