Many times google omits search results which are similar (you can click on the last results page to show the omitted ones). How can I query google search without omitting the similar?

You can append &filter=0 to the end of the query URL. The filter parameter disables automatic filtering, which disables both the filtering of duplicate content and host crowding.

As far as I can tell, this is exactly what the "repeat the search with the omitted results included" link does.

However, there is no way to make this permanent as far as I can tell.

Hmm I actually wanted something in the search query (a flag similar to: "site: www.example.com") but that will have to do – Bartlomiej Skwira Sep 2 '12 at 10:05
AFAIK there are no search operators that will do a similar thing unfortunately. – w3dk Sep 2 '12 at 10:10
In that case topic closed, thanks for the right answer! – Bartlomiej Skwira Sep 2 '12 at 16:37
