Via the Official Google Blog, Google has announced that it will be implementing Google Suggest, as early as next week. Google Suggest simplifies user searches by providing search suggestions. According to Google, “we're excited because Google Suggest will be "graduating" from Labs and available by default on the Google.com homepage. Over the next week, we'll be rolling this out so that more and more of you will start seeing a list of query suggestions when you start typing into the search box.”

This is what 'Google Suggest' is good for:

Help formulate queries: “Instead of just typing [hotels in washington] – did you want [hotels in washington dc] or [hotels in washington state]? Don't remember that song title or person's name? Let Google help you search (and yes, I ended up choosing "From This Moment" as our wedding song).”

Reduce spelling errors: “Since suggestions are spell-corrected using the same "Did you mean?" feature that offers alternative spellings for your query after you search, misspellings and typos can be corrected ahead of time. Instead of wasting your time with a misspelled query like [new yrok times] or [tomorow never dies], search the first time with the correctly-spelled query.”

Saves keystrokes: “Who wants to spend their time typing [san francisco chronicle] when you can just type in "san f…" and choose the suggestion right away?”
