Hi all,

Has anyone else noticed the "Search harder" button located at the bottom of a search result page on Google?

It seems that you can dig in, or request additional/new results for a specific search.

Interesting..

Oh I guess some people noticed it already...sorry for the duplicate post.

In a way, I am wondering why the Google dev. team spends time creating those kind of "cool" features, when the mass of website owners is not happy about the current GG search results.

I guess I wish we saw updates or adjustements in the SERPs more often rather than seeing those types of features being added to their search engine periodically which makes me feel that they are paying more attention to those than the core of their biz, which is natural search.

Am I the only one feeling that way?

I would imagine that the majority of Googles users are happy with the results. The 'unhappy SEO' proportion is tiny in comparison, so it makes sense to me that they develop more tools for their core end user.

Google aim isn't to keep site owners happy. Its aim is to provide relevant search results.

And you guys see relevant results not only for your market but also across all other searches you daily do on Google? Because I do not...and I believe I ain't the only one.

Also, I have no problem with Google SERPs for my own sites, I just see every day really weird results in SERPs for almost any kind of searches.

You guys do not think updates should occur more often to refresh the list of results and give a better overall user experience?

The results google provide are more relevant than any other search engine in my opinion.

If you don't like them, then switch to whichever search engine you think is better. There's no law saying you have to use Google.
