Search Google By Reading Level

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

If you are writing for younger audiences or simply trying to make the Internet make more sense for a young person in your house, Google has a feature that will let you set the specific reading level on search results.

eBookNewser has more: “For instance, a middle school science teacher looking up earthquakes might want different search results than a geologist that wants up-to-date research on a subject.”

To search Google by reading level, Google has published the following steps:

  1. Click More search tools on the left side of the search results page.
  2. Click Reading level. You’ll now see results annotated with reading levels as well as a percentage breakdown of results by reading level.
  3. To filter your results by a specific reading level, select your desired level (BasicIntermediate, orAdvanced).
  4. At any time, you can click the X in the right corner of the blue bar beneath the search box to go back to seeing all results.
