    Google should focus in “Search” only. They are trying to do so many things but nothing really exceptional. Great “Local-search” is the biggest project they should be working right now.

    Brilliant news for publishers and webmasters that Google is dropping the Related toolbar. Their intentions with the product became VERY clear when they twice worked around ways webmasters had found to prevent it from showing.

    Perhaps something to do with all the anti-trust cases they are facing at the moment… it was pretty indefensible.

    I work for Google on Patent Search, which is expanding and will be rolling out several new features in 2012.  Our “spring cleaning announcement” was simply to alert our users that the Patent Search home page was redirecting to google.com in Patents mode.  All the content is still there, and all the searches behave exactly as before.

    i wonder if their lack of product lifetime stability… will affect their domain’s rankings.

    It may be easier to simply bookmark the Google Patent advanced search page for future reference. http://www.google.com/advanced_patent_search

    Nice post! I can’t comprehend possible reasons for the not-so-good popularity of the Related toolbar. As an user, I’d rather see all logical aspects collected together in one place, rather than having to search for it myself.

    For e.g. suppose I am searching for a pest control service in the neighborhood, I would like to look at all possible pest control services, as well as any user feedback.(if any) 

    Google Related exactly provided that, and should have been a runaway hit with local searches. However, for someone looking for information resources on the web, Google Related could be a big confusing, as he/she is presented with a lot of unnecessary content.

    Having said that, it is my personal preference that people come to Google & search, rather than searching on a toolbar. A toolbar search, though user-friendly, is not very informative. Descriptions beneath the actual search result are not visible, rendering a lot of optimization efforts useless. So, on a personal level, I am happy that Related is out of the way.
