Google as of today is undoubtedly the best/fastest search engine. Its also a well known fact that for any search in Google very few people go beyond 2 pages of search results.
Even though each search result in Google includes a “keyword related” excerpt, the data is always not enough to decide whether to click on the link or not. As an example, when I searched for “Snooker Rules” in Google, the first search result looked something like this:
As you can see from the result, it’s really difficult to make a decision whether the page really does have information on snooker rules !
User uses the “Google search” to list results for a keyword
Along with the search result, a “Summary” widget will appear by the side.
When the user hovers over a search result link, the summary of the page is extracted and displayed in the widget.
Based on the summary of the page, user can now decide whether to explore the link or not !
Personally I feel the widget really adds one more dimension of information which can be used before clicking on the search result link.
But I really feel the developer has to re-check on the Google TOS. I am not sure if the Google Search API can be used the way it is used in Saarr.com
Currently the Summary widget is still little buggy. It disappears when the user navigates away from the first page of search results. Also the summary information is not so informative if the link points to a page with Frames.
