User feedback in Google Search?

By
Real Estate Services with Timu Corp - CEO, ActiveRain - Co-founder

 

I was just doing some searches on Google and noticed something I've never seen or heard about before.  One of the links in the main search results had two feedback buttons (see screenshot)

I probabably do hundreds of google searches a day and have never seen this before.  Has anybody else seen this pop up in their search results recently?

Update:

I did a search and found that Google implemented this feedback on adwords ads several months ago as a way for users to give feedback and prevent non-relavent ads.  I didn't see any mention of it being used in the normal search results, which is where I saw it.

If you click on a link in the main results running adsense and then hit the back button the feedback buttons will appear.  I'm assuming this for quality assurance purposes to try and weed-out spammy adsense sites.

Update 2:

It's appearing for all sites when hitting back to the search results regardless of whether the sites run adsense or not.

1) I tried to search for "REPORT SCAMS!" I did not find one link to INTERPOL! or "GOOD" ones in the US! Seeing as I have received scam email from the UK, Denmark, Hong Kong, Russia and a Soldier supposedly hiding in Spain! I was curious as how to report them! Many "LINKS" ended up with bad email addresses! So I finally decided to re-read the letters and relate them to a website In doing so I found that the majority had Yahoo email addresses, based in the UK! So I searched the UK for authorities along with INTERPOL, while at INTERPOL - I got an addy for Russia! It would be nice if "search" included Maybe specific scams that were located at these sites!

a) African-Nigerian SCAM

b) U K LOTTO SCAMS

2) Why don't Google's web pages conform to I E 7.0 standards?  at 100% the screen overflows! As do many sites! I think Microsoft again "broke something that wasn't broken! OLD I E 6.0 worked great! I also notice they have "updates" and "fixes" for VISTA already! I am stuck with XP that limps along When I installed SP 2 - I lost my printer even after upgrading to new drivers! I disabled their "HUNK OF JUNK FIREWALL!" and got McAfee Internet Security Suite - ALL better now! I will not upgrade my system to VISTA! It is already broke!
