Google’s new predictive search: Search by last word

Google has come out with a new add on search capabilities for its auto complete feature (where Google predict search terms before you type full phrase).

Google says:

Its coming out with anew add-on search capabilities for auto complete because huge percentage of the queries we get have almost never been typed before, so this makes it difficult to provide predictions based on popularity. For example, very few people have searched for [florida state senate building], so until today, even when you typed nearly the whole search query, you wouldn’t get a prediction.

So, now what Google is doing?

It would provide you predictions based on only part of your search—specifically, the last word or words. While few people have searched for [florida state senate building], many more have searched for [state senate building].

By looking at just the last part of what you’ve typed into the box, in this case “state senate bui,” they can generate a prediction for “building.” You’ll see a dropdown box below the end of your search with predictions for just that word.
