Result-sorting and better filter queries in Google Custom Search Engines

Google's have added result-sorting and compact queries for filtering-by-attribute options to their Custom Search Engines (ref: Adding a custom search engine to your blog).

These are most relevant for people who use a CSE over their own blog/site, rather than over other sites which they don't control the markup.


If you have specificd PageMaps, rich-snippets or meta-tags for your posts, you can add them as an option that is available to people who use your custom-search-engine. Do this in CSE by

  • Enable sorting ( > Control Panel > Basics)
  • Adding the key.


The language that is used to state a qeury against defined attributes now supports "and"-ing values together in a more compact way.
