A Suggestion for Google SLOJ: How About Adding Google's Wonder Wheel?
In May of 2009 Goggle release a display option called Google Wonder Wheel. It's a mind mapper that shows potentially relevant linked search terms related to your initial search. To use the Wonder Wheel, click on the "Show Options" link after performing a Google search and path down to the "Standard View" heading in the left sidebar for Wonder Wheel.
To the right of each Wonder Wheel, search results are displayed but are omitted in this brief illustration using Google to search for "google books settlement":
|Step One: Wonder Wheel display for search of "google books settlement."|
|Step Two: Display after clicking on "authors guild google books settlement."|
|Step Three: Display after clicking on "ophan works."|
The wheel displayed at the bottom of Step Three's graphic as an empty circle is actually the original search's "wonder wheel" and it is a live link.
Google SLOJ. Unfortunately the "Wonder Wheel" is not a display feature in Google SLOJ but it might be a useful addition. [JH]
