Anyone else seeing this? It's on the bottom of the SERPs, right next to the NEXT button. In fact, I almost clicked on it out of habit. I'm sure that was intentional, though. ;)

The Related Searches are just an experiment that we're trying. There are pieces of scumware that attach a new frame to search engine results, and sometimes even try to look like the search engine that they're emulating, but the Related Searches that Haymeadows noticed was from us.

This is a bit different. But "We don't always discuss it, but Google is always trying interesting new things that can help users to improve their searches" is a comment that should age well. Nice notice, kpaul.. :)

Just reviewed the screenshot here:
[haymeadows.com...]

Seems like an excellent approach - allows users to refine the search using the benefit of searches they did not use but that may relate _better_ to the info they seek.

just seems to be an import of the adwords keyword suggestion tool, but maybe they display the most frequently searched suggestions from the long list that the sandbox creates...? would be very valuable for SEO's, therefore i doubt this would ever be a long lasting feature in the SERPS.
