"Was this link useful?" - New feature?

 5:22 pm on Nov 29, 2006 (gmt 0)

After clicking on a link in the SERPs, I've just visited a site that did not offer what I was looking for, so I clicked back to the SERPs.

I was surprised to see a new feature directly underneath the site title saying 'Was this link useful', along with Yes/No buttons.

Anyone else seen this? If so, how long have I missed this for?

I've heard a few other reports -- haven't seen it myself, but my browser does not query Google a second time when I back button. In fact, I usually open results in a new window, so there's no tracks of my behavior for Google to use to trigger such a thing.

This sounds like a test or trial to me - anyone else see it?

I have a screenshot to demonstrate how it appears. Can I post a direct link to the image stored on my server?

No, sorry. The Google Forum Charter [webmasterworld.com] is very strict about the links we can accept.
