Nathan Sauser spotted a new feedback form on Google’s search results.
It was a contextual pop up that asked him “How Satisfied Are You With These Results?” The responses had smily faces representing five ranges from very satisfied down to very dissatisfied.
A Google spokesperson has confirmed that this is indeed a Google run feedback for aimed at getting feedback from Google searchers.
A Google spokesperson said:
Thanks for reaching out. As you know, we always ask for user feedback in a range of forms — from live experiments to inviting people in to our UX labs — in order to improve our products. This is one of our experiments — one of many signals we take into consideration to make search better.
