Thread Title:
Matt Cutts On Google Suggests
Thread Description:

Jason Dowdell publishes a transcript of his conversation with Google engineer Matt Cutts about Google Suggest the new beta tool that predicts what you're searching for as you type it into the text box.

Here's what he had to say:

"I don't have much extra information on Google Suggest, but I know that suggestions aren't based on personal search history, according to http://labs.google.com/suggest/faq.html . I wouldn't be surprised if the order of the suggestions is determined by how often searches were queried at some point in the past. I'm basing that off this quote from the FAQ: 'For example, Google Suggest uses data about the overall popularity of various searches to help rank the refinements it offers.'"

Practically nothing, heh...

I think Matt knows a fair bit more than that, after all, it's not that tricky to see how it works now is it?

Come on Matt, we know you can do better than that mate! :-)
