Interesting.  I haven’t been researching this yet....but it looks like Google has two Top Ten results - traditional SERPs and the Suggested.  The Suggested are based on how many times those keywords were found?  If so, it’s a Reputation Management tool that can work both ways, to both rip apart or promote.There’s a difference between how many pages are linked to and clicked (algo) and how many times engines simply find keywords.  What I wonder about is whether Google would take an increase in clicks from the Suggested pile and feed them into basic SERPS, thinking they’re credible clicks.Too easy to manipulate this if so.

Ya let me know when you figure it out because there are some words that should be semantically proximate to me that aren’t in Google for some weird reason, like sexy, cool, awesome, and hilarious.

This new features on Google’s search query is a bit scary..I just hope our company don’t have lots of negative suggestions result pages.
