Google’s Clustered Searches

We’re about to leave for Cardiff, so did some quick searches on both Microsoft’s Live.com and Google.

Google offers up a cluster at the top of the results (asking me to refine results, with links to dining guides, lodging guides, attractions, shopping, suggested itineraries, tours & day trips) which is much more helpful to searchers than what Microsoft is offering up.

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen such clustering (AltaVista used to have similar clusters) but it’s the first time I’ve noticed them on Google.

I just tried Yahoo and they have similar clusters, but I like Google’s better.

Anyway, we’re off to Cardiff. Talk later!

UPDATE: Live.com has the same kinds of clusters that Google has, but it puts them over on the right hand side where I totally didn’t see them. I’m so used to the right side being used for advertising that I don’t even look there anymore.
