Can't wait to see any updates in the near future to this current version and really hope Google allows the old searchtempest back this current version while better then nothing is lightyears away from our old experience
I was just thinking about this some more. There is a workaround you could use: in the Direct Results controls, you can set it to sort listings by date (that should be the default). Then, as you view the results page for each area, always click on the first post in the list, even if you're not interested in it. That way, the next time you view those results, that one will show as visited, so you'll know you've already seen everything below it.

Could you add an option to setup a custom area?

If you want to control what states and cities are included, you can already do that as part of your search. On the main search page, click 'Search by US State or Region' at the lower left. Then you can pick and choose the states and cities you want to be included in the results. Once there, you can choose to have them grouped by area, state, or city.

If you choose 'area', it will still use our predefined areas, since we have designed them to effectively cover the area of the country. But the areas will only include the cities you selected.

We're also planning to improve this in the future, combining the ability to search by zip code and distance with the ability to toggle individual states and cities on and off. Not quite there yet though.

I have it searching by region and then grouping by city and that seems to be more like the old version for me anyway. I think I can get used to it. Thanks for all you do.

Sounds good. If you like the city grouping you may also want to try the 'Or, open Direct Results in popup windows' option below the regular list of links (if you're on a desktop browser).

Sadly looks like they caught up. Cant group by city any longer. Not impressed with the new layout.
