Tumblr has revamped its search functionality, making it easier to explore the 65 billion posts generated by its users.

The microblogging platform and social networking website says it has been hard at work on the feature for the last few months.

Here are a few of the big additions to check out:

  • Users can now use multiple #tags in a single query  
  • Searching for “government shutdown” now returns posts tagged #government shutdown or that mention ”government shutdown”. Searching “#government shutdown” will limit the results to posts with that #tag.
  • Users will now see related blogs in your search results.
  • You can use the new Filter menu to filter by post type.

Tumblr has moved the explicit content filter option right to the search results page, and thusly also unblock keywords in its apps that used to be prohibited by app store policies. Ahem.
