Hey there, search enthusiasts!
Another exciting news from Google – they’ve just rolled out a cool feature called “Notes” through Search Labs. Imagine having the power to share your thoughts right next to search results!
In a Tuesday morning announcement, Google unveiled this experimental feature, allowing users to view and contribute tips via Notes. It’s like a virtual post-it board for the internet, and it’s here to make your search experience more personal.
Here’s the breakdown on Notes: If you opt-in through Google’s Search Labs, a shiny “Notes” button will pop up under specific search results and Discover articles in the Google app. Give it a tap, and voila! You can see notes left by others about that page, or you can be the maestro of information by creating your own notes.
When you tap the button, you’ll see other people’s notes.
Brad Kellett, Senior Director of Engineering for Google Search, highlighted that Notes will be a treasure trove of insights. Whether you’re hunting for local tips in a new city or tweaking spice levels in a recipe, Notes aims to provide a human touch to your search results.
But What About Safety?
Google’s got you covered. They prioritize content safety and quality, implementing protections and human content moderation similar to standard Search results. The feature is currently in experimental beta testing, ensuring it’s a helpful tool without compromising on safety.
Now, Addressing Concerns From Site Owners
Google reassures that they’re actively exploring ways to provide insights into notes on content. They understand the importance of collaboration and plan to work closely with website owners to determine the most beneficial tools.
Excitingly, Notes is already live! Initially available in English in the U.S. and in English and Hindi in India through Google Search Labs on Android and iOS.
So, go ahead, dive into the world of Notes, share your expertise, and make searching the web a bit more personal!
