gBlender; blending the search results your way

What’s up in the experimental google labs? Check out the following experiment where your blend the search results to something more appropriate for your search.

Google

This experiment lets you influence your search experience by adding, moving, and removing search results. When you search for the same keywords again, you’ll continue to see those changes. If you later want to revert your changes, you can undo any modifications you’ve made. Note that this is an experimental feature and may be available for only a few weeks.

So how does it work?

  • Like it?
    This will move the result to the top of the page and add an orange marker next to it so you can easily recognize it. The result(s) you promote will appear at the top whenever you search for the same keyword(s) in the future.
  • Don’t like it?
    This button will remove the result, and it will remain hidden when you search for the same keyword(s) in the future.
  • Know of a better webpage?
    At the bottom of the search results you can give the address of a page that’s relevant to your search. When you search for these same keyword(s) the page you’ve suggested will appear at the top with this orange marker .
  • Is it permanent?
    Your changes will be applied each time you search for the same keyword(s). There’s a link at the bottom of the search results that lets you view the results in their original ordering.
