New Patent
Application Explains Google Suggest
over at Search Engine Roundtable points
at and summarizes Bill Slawski’s

discussion
at Cre8asite about how a patent

application
for
Google Suggest
reveals that it may gather terms from most popular searches, hot news searches,
recent searches and most used searches. Bill’s also got a very nice blog post,

Predictive Queries
, on how the prediction could also be used to cache search
results for anticipated queries and speed up answers even more.

Poistscript from Gary:
As I’ve pointed on several occasions, Google Suggest is not the first tool to offer dynamic search term suggestions. In fact, other resources not only point to potential results but also take you directly to a specific page. This recent post about a new “find as you search” feature from Answers.com offers a look at several of these tools.
