    I commented over on your post, Barry, but yup: this is new. As always, we experiment with ways to help users, including query refinement. Any new feature has a high bar to meet before we turn it on 100%; we don’t want features that crowd the page but don’t really help users.

    Related Search is a great feature – the users love it. We find on the site search that we run that about 25% of people use it. We typically show related searches at the top and the bottom.

    The other benefit Google will see is that it will increase their revenue from the paid search results.
