Digg Search is Now Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

by , Comments

Digg has introduced an updated search to their social bookmarking site. Design head Daniel Burka outlined the changes in a post on the Digg blog. The updates include:

  • Filtering by factors such as Digg count, topic, time, etc.

  • Advanced shortcuts to search for specific promotion characteristics. Add +p to your query for only promoted stories, +u for upcoming stories, and +b for buried.

  • Common search tricks - quotes for exact match and a negative sign before the term to keep that term out of results

  • A graph demonstrating the historical trend of a term

  • Searching for stories from a particular domain is much more effective. Filtering results by domain is also available.

  • New RSS feeds allow users to create feeds for a given topic but filter out results they don't wish to see

  • Digg search is faster
