What's New at Google - Google Suggest

Category: Professional

What's new at Google? Google Suggest (Beta).

As you type your search query, Google suggests the possible search keywords alongwith search results.

For example,
Type poe (wait for a second or two) and a drop-down populates the words - poems, poetry, poem, poets, poetry.com, poetry contests etc. alongwith their search results.

The Google Suggest link is also available from Google Labs, Google's technology playground.

PS: I like the name, Google Suggest, Google is suggesting and not commanding you to take that as the query. It will be a useful utility for related searches, for example, you're searching for a product and as you key in the first few alphabets of that product's name you will get related search keywords and their results. Example, type kod and you get a drop-down with results for kodak cameras and related model searches.
