Customize Your Search Results with Google's Search Wiki

Google launched a very customizable tool which will help the users to store the search results as per their relevance, but you need to be signed in order to see the customizable search results. Now customize the search results, by adding, re-ordering, removing or commenting on them. The Google's Search Wiki is a great way to share your insights with others, by clicking on the "See all notes for this SearchWiki" link, you will be able to see the search insights by all the searchers.

Sign in to your account and do Google search for your keywords, you will see three additional things next to the search results,
  • Promote
  • Remove, and
  • Comment
The following is the example for the search results shown for the keyword: 'search engine news'. I have moved the ranking for the search results, for the site Search Engine Land, to the top position also I have made a comment for it which is displayed.

Image-2: Showing that the search result has moved to the top, with a highlighted upward green arrow.

Things to be noted
  • You can use the customizable search results, only when you have logged in to your Google Account.
  • All the settings will be saved in your Google Account.
  • You can see all the search insights by clicking "See all notes for this SearchWiki" at the bottom of the page.
  • The reordering is difficult, as you can move the respective page to the top position.
