Googles Wonder wheel

This is a nice and useful visual search tool that Google has added to its search engines results page. The tool allows you to visualise your search results and then select and extend from the original search.

First step – Load google and run a search. Then Select Show options

Then Select Wonder Wheel

Having done that the results page transforms to include the Wonder Wheel. The wheel appears on the Left and on the right are the search results. (See Below)

Clicking on a branch from the wonder wheel will change the focus to be based on the selected node. (see below)

A useful tool and a benefit to the visual learners amongst us.
