Ive seen it a lot recently that when i search for something i know is there but
don't know the name exactly i get a search result window.
In the example link the page i search for is "films recut by studio" when the
actual page title is "List of films recut by studio"
If the results haven't changed the actual page title link gets a 100% chance of
being what i need and the next item is 1,4% and not even closely related.
The idea or the question is to change the outcome if the results are blatantly
obvious, like this.
So if i had searched for this i would have gotten the page itself but if i
wanted something else i could have pressed the Search button itself, instead of
the Go which is the default action apparently.
Seems like it already works, what's the question?
The suggestion appears to be that if there's one result that's a clear winner,
you should go straight to that page rather than displaying it on a
search-results page along with the million results that happen to have two words
in common with the search terms. But only if you press "Go" rather than "Search".
Yes :D Nice analogue, i was typing out one but you were quicker on it. I should
have worded it better
We definitely would not make that change, no.
"Clear winner" is in the eye of the beholder.
True, thats why it was just a suggestion and a low priority :) Thanks
