Google Experimental

Monday, April 14th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Google Experimental

Are you tired of the same old and boring Google?

Oh, that just makes me yawn!

Luckily, Google has been experimenting with their search engine and they want you to help them out! It’s fittingly titled Google Experimental and with it, you have access to one of the three search experiments Google is trying out. How cool is that? Let’s take a look!

Alternate Views

1.) Go to and choose Join this experiment, listed under the “Alternate views for search results” section.

2.) To try it out, go back to, type in “George Washington view:timeline” and see what comes up.

3.) It will show you a timeline of George Washington’s life, along with a graph that shows you when the major events of his documented life occurred. How nifty!

I bet you want to try out the rest, don’t you? Then let’s go!

Keyword Suggestions

1.) Go back to the Google Experimental homepage and click Leave where the Join this experiment option was before. Then click on the Join this experiment button, located to the right of the “Keyword suggestions” section.

2.) Now, click here and type in a word such as “WorldStart.” Wait a second until you see a box that looks like this:

3.) If you like any of the options it gives you, just click on one and you’ll be taken right to the real search results.

Keyboard Shortcuts

1.) Go back to Google Experimental and leave your old experiment to join the next one, under the “Keyboard shortcuts” section.

2.) For this one, I’d suggest right clicking on the link labeled “rattlesnake” and then choose Open in New Window. That way, you can easily refer back to your shortcuts.

3.) Press the letter J on your keyboard and see what happens. Then press the letter K. The arrow is moving up and down. How handy is that?!

4.) Press the / (forward slash) on your keyboard and type in “WorldStart.” Press Enter and then press J three times. Now, press Enter again and if you’re still following me, you should be on WorldStart’s software store site!

Those are just a few examples of what you can do with Google Experimental. Check it out today!
