    Talking Google Suggest - Suggesting top searches?

    Hello,
    I just discovered Google "suggest yesterday:

    http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en

    Anyway I don't know if anyone has brought this out, but have you noticed that the order in which the "suggestions" appear isn't in the order of results... what do you think they are ordering by? I believe it is by the number of searches - I verified this by searching overtures "keyword suggestion tool" which produced the same results in order from most searches to least as google does in their suggest box... pretty handy for coming up with keywords.

    Any comments?

    They say
    Our algorithms use a wide range of information to predict the queries users are most likely to want to see.
    This implies that some of that is based on the commonality of searching. I think you hit it on the head.

    Could be very useful.

    You can get the same basic data from Wordtracker and Overture.
