Has Anyone come Across the New Search Shortcut on Google Search?

Google has just added a new shortcut to Search. Moving forward, users will see a “must include’ link underneath a search result that doesn’t contain the term you searched for.

For example, I tried searching for ‘MissTechy’s whereabouts’ and I got a result from LinkedIn that didn’t have the term ‘whereabouts.’ With the new shortcut, I can click on ‘Must include: whereabout’ which performs the search again with the condition that all results must have the word, whereabout.

At the end of my search, I wasn’t able to figure out MissTechy’s whereabouts, but at least I saved myself the stress of going through Page 3 of the search results.

The shortcut is currently available on mobile and desktop search. Has anyone come across it, yet?

    Nope, haven’t seen it. Searched multiple shit (even “misstechy’s whereabouts”) and nothing, nothing at all.

    Wait, hold on, y’all go that far. I just look through the 1st page and I’m out if i don’t see what I’m looking for. ̶W̶e̶l̶l̶ ̶e̶x̶c̶e̶p̶t̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶p̶o̶r̶n̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶c̶o̶u̶r̶s̶e̶

  2. Hello Tobi,

    Yes I have seen the feature. I think it helps people get more accurate results for exact match keywords but in the same way, it means less traffic for bloggers who can’t rank first page for that keyword. 😑😢

    1. But for ya’ll rocking 11k backlinks and raking in tens of thousands of search visitors, google’s new update got nothin’ on ya! 😊
