Searchblog clues us into a new dynamic query suggestion tool from Snap.com. It might look and feel like Google Suggest but the difference is that instead of listing how many hits a search term or phrase might have, Snap.com lists how many times the terms have been searched. Snap’s Bill Gross tells JB,
Google suggest is awesome, but doesnt do substrings, just the leading characters of the search term, I believe. Also, Google shows you hit count in the index, not number of searches performed by users. Number of searches by users seems to yield useful results from the network of people in a collaborative filtering kind of way.
