Provide Support for Common Search Tasks

Common search tasks include things like going to the next page of results, starting a new search, and refining a current search. Figure J3.5 shows a good example of how the Google search engine handles these tasks. The top of the page provides a search entry form, letting visitors quickly create a new search if they did not get the results they wanted. In addition, the new-search form includes the search terms that the customer originally typed in, making it easy for them to remember what they entered and to edit it if necessary.

Figure J3.5. Google has a clean, minimalist design for displaying search results and supporting common tasks.
