Google Upgrades Search – SearchWiki

When searching on Google the other day, I noticed two new icons for the first time. Next to each search result, there now are two icons. One of them looks like an arrow pointing upwards inside of a box, and the other looks like an X inside of a box.

When you mouseover the first, the tooltip says “Promote”. When you mouseover the second, the tooltip says “Remove”.

Also, a little less conspicuous is a comment icon, allowing you to post comments about the search result.

Google is calling the new features “SearchWiki”, and they posted about it in the Official Google Blog.

Have you noticed this new feature? Have you used it at all? What are your thoughts?
