I'm seeing a left navigation style menu with "Search for widget" and "Refine widget" listed. Underneath those topics are links to Google News, Images, Maps, Groups, etc.
At the bottom of search results, are more links to "Search" and "Refine".
My coworker sitting next to me loaded a Google search, and the "Refine widget" links are in the top middle of the screen.
Hello everyone. Considering that it's about time for me to stop being a WebmasterWorld stalker, I'd like to forward a discussion starting point involving Google's links to related searches, as shown on *some* of its SERPs.
--> Now, what I would like to *hear* from you (in writing, of course) are some theories revolving around the search terms selected by Google to embed their SERPs with links to related searches.
--> Which search terms were selected by Google when testing this "related searches" features? Are they taken from Google Special Searches, Google Zeitgeist, Google AdWords or from the fundamental American vocabulary?
--> At this point, I consider that these search terms were taken from Google AdWords, meaning that a search term highly-rated (as in: "costly / financially expensive") on Google AdWords will also trigger related searches on its Google SERP.
Thank you for your "Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Anne" greetings, in advance ;-)

You know even the december opening posts were late.
I noticed this for *cough* location names last autumn.
But in fact it had been around ever since summer. Perhaps longer.
What can i say, one of the major co-ops for the things we are interested in is Lonely Planet, so i feel somewhat reassured ^.^
But if you'd ever wonder again what a refined search is, how the categories are set, who selects the recommended sites etc. ... it's the most trusted sources partnering with G, plus a set of volunteers who signed up through G labs. The whole interface looks like some community site... not sure if you'd get accepted though, we've never tried :P
Naw, i'd assume anyone can join.
Took me one click to find out btw, ( i was curious when i saw we were listed for some refined terms, although it was not an editor picked listing ).
Go and see for yourself at the Co-Op [google.com] page...
