(by pio dal cin)  +Google  announced a few days ago with This Post on G+ that it is adding a new feature aimed to get an in depth look. Starting with English search, it will be now possible to get this kind of result when searching for something, as highlited here by this great article by +Pandu Nayak 

Discover great in-depth articles on Google

To understand a broad topic, sometimes you need more than a quick answer. Our researchindicates perhaps 10% of people’s daily information needs fit this category -- topics like stem cell research, happiness, and love, to name just a few. That's why over the next few days we’ll be rolling out a new feature to help you find relevant in-depth articles in the main Google Search results.

Now sometimes when you're searching for a broad topic (on in English to start), you'll find a new block of results like the following:

If you care about censorship, you'll find a thought-provoking article by Salman Rushdie in The New Yorker, a piece by our very own Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen in the Guardian, and another greatarticle about Iran. If you're in the mood for something lighter, search for [lego], you'll find great in-depth articles about many different facets of the topic from gender to engineering to art. For some more examples, check out new search results for population growthcapital punishment and e-waste.

I'm happy to see people continue to invest in thoughtful in-depth content that will remain relevant for months or even years after publication. This is exactly what you'll find in the new feature. In addition to well-known publishers, you'll also find some great articles from lesser-known publications and blogs. If you're a publisher or webmaster, check out our help center article and post on theWebmaster Central blog to learn more.
