Google has now launched the search refinement-related topic feature under the Google Search Bar. Google the search refinements in action at the Search On event, and Google them before they were released.
These refinements are what they look like. This GIF shows these refinements at work. Google shows this scrolling list of similar topics at the top search results page. This list should include useful topics that are related to your query.
You can refine your query by adding a + symbol to their topic.
Google’s above example shows that if you search for “dinner ideas”, you may see topics such as “easy” and “healthy”. This allows you to quickly narrow down your search results.
Google’s topics are constantly changing and you can tap to see new options. This will give you more choices and help you discover new places.
What dynamic topics do. Google explains how dynamic topics work.
Now rolling out. Google stated that this will be available over the next few days for English-speaking U.S. searchers via the Google app on iOS, Android and mobile web.
We care. The search refinements can lead to increased or decreased traffic to your website depending on whether they are related to, or disassociated from the queries that your site ranks for. To see whether these topic refinements are available for top performing queries, keep an eye out.
