Google adds an amazingly cool feature

ReadWriteWeb points out a cool new Google feature: Google Search Wiki.

The feature will allow logged-in users to change the order of search results and mark up search results pages with notes. Only their own results will be changed – unless they click a link to view all Search Wiki notes on a search’s page. Very few details are out yet, nothing regarding vandalism, libel, history, messiness, collaboration or other wiki matters. Those are pretty important concerns given that this could become the biggest and most important wiki in the world.

UPDATE: Google seems to be trying to decide whether they like this feature or not. More from Micro Persuasion.

This is a great feature for those of us using Google searches as a quasi-bookmark. It’s also going to be interesting to see if this feature helps improve general search result quality. Kudos to Google, this is a great new feature!
