How can I add more sparks to my Google Plus account?

Ah here it is. Unfortunately when I click "Save this search" it creates a new link with a small magnifier icon in the sidebar that give me all results when I click it. I would like a link that gives me only sparks results, as my old ones. Is it still possible? – Drake Oct 4 '11 at 13:04
