Mike Grehan writes about a new feature first seen on Google.co.uk.

Apparently while searching for 'digital cameras' in the British Google site, at the end of the SERP was a box saying:

“Know of a better page for digital cameras? Suggest one!”

Now, after selecting the option, the message changes to:

“Next time, we’ll place it up top for you, with this marker: *”

Grehan writes, "Yes, you get to input the URL of a favourite page on the query subject, click the button and , of course, you're taken to your Google account to log in to your personalized search. Next time you search for digital cameras, your favourite page is up top with a little marker."

Seeing the pointless ness of this feature, Joe Dolson writes:

"So…if you already know of the best resource, why are you searching in the first place? The only value I can really see to this is to hope you can game the search engines — and that's a pretty dubious perk. I suppose you could use it as a sort of pseudo-bookmark resource in your Google account."
