What is Google Suggest?
As you type into the search box, Google Suggest guesses what you’re typing and offers suggestions in real time. This is similar to Google’s “Did you mean?” feature that offers alternative spellings for your query after you search, except that it works in real time.
For example, if you type “Web,” Google Suggest might offer a list of refinements that include “web design company” or “website designer.” Similarly, if you type in only part of a word, like “sear,” Google Suggest might offer you refinements like “search engine optimization,” “searchengines,” “search for jobs,” or “search for cars.” You can choose one by scrolling up or down the list with the arrow keys or mouse.
At Google currently they offer Google Suggest through several Google services, and we plan to add more. To get real-time keyword suggestions when you type in Google News searches, for instance, simply click the “News” link on the Google Suggest homepage. You can also use Google Suggest by downloading the latest version of the Google Toolbar for either Internet Explorer or Firefox.
