Default What do you think of the *new* Team-BHP Search Refinement Labels?

Broadly, there are two ways of searching through the Team-BHP Knowledgebase. First is the Google search and then, the default forum search (More info on both search methods here (How to SEARCH on Team-BHP)).

We've recently added refinement labels to our Google search engine. Refinement labels allow you to refine an existing search.

Notice the new refinement labels on the search results page (marked in Red):

After searching for Tata Safari, if I click on the Reviews label, the search results page lists all the Tata Safari Reviews:

Chose the Technical refinement label:

For Sale:

Here, I searched for Toyota Innova, and then clicked on the Travelogues label:

Try it . Usually works swell. The integrated google search supports any kind of search style (single search term, combinations, phrases, two character terms and more).

Its a nice feature as we get everything related to a search with just 1 click.

One thing which doesn't look nice is - Why Search textbox gets blank, after clicking on search?
It should retain it's value even after searching the records. For example, if we search on other sites, let's say in Google, the textbox shows the text in search textbox, even after displaying the results.

As per my own views, the benefits of this approach:
  • Usability Standards
  • Helps a user to know (coming back after few minutes), what exactly he / she searched for
  • Helps a user to modify the existing search string even after getting the results. Less effort for typing the additional characters
Cheers!

Good feature. A Question though.

So there are five categories of refinement labels-Reviews, Technical, News, For Sale & Travelogues. Is there scope for increasing number of categories (though I think the above five cover almost everything up)?
