Google Autocomplete Can Now Focus on the End of the Query

...what we're doing is making predictions based on only part of your search - specifically, the last word or words. While few people have searched for [florida state senate building], many more have searched for [state senate building]. By looking at just the last part of what you've typed into the box, in this case "state senate bui," we can generate a prediction for "building." You'll see a dropdown box below the end of your search with predictions for just that word.


Sounds pretty clever, and it will probably send Google Suggest scraper tools back for a re-coding, too.

I can see this feature is pretty helpful as well. I've triggered it a couple of times struggling to find something that I know exists, and the "tail end" suggestions clarified my direction.

It also pulls data from prior search history ... Giving Google a new data matrix. How many people search, go to a site, come back at a later date, do the same search and go to the same site.
