Do you know when you really are desperate for a search engine to refine your searches to those relevant to you? Like when you are in Nairobi and you start searching for Pizza Joints and they show you those in New York? Now Google has simplified it for you. The blog post from Google reads:

Starting today, we’ve added the ability to refine your searches with the “Nearby” tool in the Search Options panel. One of the really helpful things about this tool is that it works geographically — not just with keywords — so you don’t have to worry about adding “Minneapolis” to your query and missing webpages that only say “St. Paul” or “Twin Cities.” Check it out by doing a search, clicking on “show options” and selecting “Nearby.”

This is good development from Google.
