SearchWiki: make search your own

Last 20th Google has launched SearchWiki, a way to customize search results by re-ranking, deleting, adding, and commenting on search results. With just a single click you can move the results you like to the top or add a new site.

You can also write notes attached to a particular site and remove results that you don't feel belong. These modifications will be shown to you every time you do the same search in the future. SearchWiki is available to signed-in Google users and your changes are stored in your Google Account.

SearchWiki's main idea is to give users the opportunity to manually customize the search results and make them more predictable. Since many people repeat common searches and Google's results are constantly changing, it's nice to pick your favorite results and display them at the top. If you can't find a site you like, click on "Add a result" and manually add a page in the list of top results.

How about SEO, you might ask? Well, that's a completely different story.
