Google Confirms Midpage "See Results For" Results Out Of Testing -- What Should They Be Called?
recently about Google not committing to some of its user interface
experiments. Well, they have with one of them, those middle-of-the-page "See
results for" suggestions that some have seen. They have been declared officially
part of the Google web search results pages, not just an experiment that might
go away. More about this below, plus a call for people to suggest a common name
the feature is part of the regular Google UI in one of our SEW Forums threads,
after yet again, someone was asking about them.
Our long-standing thread about this feature is here:
Of The Page "More Results" Experiment On Google. It gives lots of examples
on how the feature works. Currently, you should be able to see if in a search
for relentless. You
should get a section midway down that says:
See results for: relentless
Relentless logo. New site coming soon… Recording
artists: KT Tunstall ·
Joss Stone. A&R contact: Relentless 43 Brook Green …
Relentless "Metal" Records. Welcome to our
domain… Enter. © RELENTLESS "METAL"
RECORDS. Tax Attorney · Tax Attorney.
Relentless Records Home
Resurrection was released in 1999 by Angel Witch Productions
Relentless Records, then put out by Crook’d Records, then
bootlegged by Zoom …
Some further background is
with them being spotted way
back in early
August 2005. It can be hit and miss about what exactly triggers it. However, if
you do see it happen, others should also see it for the same query.
I was also talking with Google about this feature directly yesterday. I was
told these were made part of the official UI a few weeks after initially being
tested. They were deemed successful, so Google made them a regular feature.
As GoogleGuy notes, Google expects to have documentation up on Google’s
guide to its web search
results pages shortly. But they don’t have an official name for these yet.
So let’s help! What do you think they should be called? I’ll throw out one
suggestion. Call that section the MidBox or MidBox Results. We already have
OneBox results at the
top of the page, so it kind of fits in with that but also communications the
position on the page.
What do you think of the feature? Have some suggested names? Please comment
