Universal search: The best answer is still the best answer

Official Google Blog: Universal search: The best answer is still the best answer

Why?

"With universal search, we're attempting to break down the walls that traditionally separated our various search properties and integrate the vast amounts of information available into one simple set of search results."
Google has now managed to one up themselves. The introduction of universal search may not sound a lot different from how search worked before but once you see it at work, you may feel differently.

Before universal search, if you searched on the Web for Red Corvette, you'd just get links to articles about red Corvettes. Now you'll also receive a link for all of the images turned up by that search. Again, some of you may have searched just for images and been happy.

This new format and search capability intends to bring you the best relevant answer to your search. Search results will tie together all types of media, including book snippets, images, and video.

I look forward to our new search overlords. (wink)
