What is SearchWiki?
SearchWiki lets users customize Google Web Search results by ranking or removing, and adding notes to each search result. This works only if the user is signed in to his Google Account. User can also see how other users have tailored any given search results page with their own notes and changes.

So, How do I use SearchWiKi

  • If a user likes certain link on search result page, then just click on to move the search result to the top of the page. This result will appear at the top (displaying marker Link Up) whenever same search is made.
  • If user does not like a search result, then he can just click on Remove to remove it, and this will remain hidden whenever same search is made in the future.
  • If user knows about a better webpage on the web, so just Click Add a result at the bottom of any search results page to add a page that is considered relevant to that search. Just mentioned the URL in the box, and then click Add. When a search is done in the in the future, the suggested page will appear at the top displaying marker Link Up.
  • Last but not the least, Want if user needs to comment on a result. It is as easy as to click Comment to open a text box and type in the comment. This comment will appear next time the user searches. Comments are a great way to save and recall any thoughts or notes about a particular page.
