It has been my biggest question about Google+.  Why the hell Google has a product without a nice search function?  Isn’t Google a search engine company?

How to Search Streams and Profiles in Google Plus

Search Streams (Posts)

  • Column 1: G+ Posts
  • Column 2: gpost
  • Column 3: {google:baseURL}search?q=site:plus.google.com inurl:posts/* %s

Search Profiles

  • Column 1: G+ Profiles
  • Column 2: gprofile
  • Column 3: {google:baseURL}search?q=%s&tbs=prfl:e

After this is done, you can search in the Chrome address bar (omnibox) by typing “gpost” or “gprofile”, then press [tab] key and enter the keyword to search.
