Among these cool new tools lies the Wonder Wheel. It’s a pretty interesting tool that allows you to search a term and see the related topics around it. For example, if you search for “Broadband Plan,” your original “Broadband Plan” search will come up in a circle and branched off that will be related searches and topics such as “Wireless Broadband Plan” or “Mobile Broadband Plan.” Along the right side of your screen, Google updates relevant articles parallel with what you’re searching for.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think that this type of tool will become part of my daily job while searching for topics and issues. Perhaps it will even bring to light certain angles that I’m simply not thinking of. Well done, Google, well done.
