Google Labs is trialling a feature to allow users to vote search results up or down in the same way as Digg lets you Digg or bury stories.

Results that are buried will be permanently excluded for the keywords you buried them for.

What does this mean for search marketers?

For me it doesn’t mean much, I concentrate on user experience and the creation of clickable search results. For people without good titles and meta descriptions or spammy sites it means the world.

This experiment lets you influence your search experience by adding, moving, and removing search results. When you search for the same keywords again, you’ll continue to see those changes. If you later want to revert your changes, you can undo any modifications you’ve made. Note that this is an experimental feature and may be available for only a few weeks.
