launched real-time search suggestions that were tailored towards users in different countries. Today, Google is taking this one step further and is launching an improved version of Google Suggest that also takes larger metro areas into account. Now, Google Suggest will offer different suggestions for users in New York City and Portland, OR, for example. For the time being, this feature is only available in the U.S.About a year ago, Google
Smarter Spelling Correction for Names
In addition, Google is also rolling out smarter corrected spellings for names. As Google notes, people often search for names, but don't know the exact spelling. Now, whenever you add a person's profession, affiliation or other related keywords to an approximation of this person's name, Google will offer better suggestions and more useful spelling corrections.
This feature, too, is currently only available in the U.S., though Google plans to roll it out in other parts of the world within the next few months.
Auto-Correction for 31 Additional Languages
Google is also rolling out auto-corrected spellings for 31 additional languages. These auto-corrections kick in whenever a user misspells a common word. For uncommon misspellings, Google will still give you a link to the corrected search results behind a link that says "Did you mean: ReadWriteWeb."
Whenever Google feels confidents that the auto-corrected version is what you were really looking for, the search engine bypasses the link and just drops you off on a search results page that is based on the correct spelling.
