This is weird … Claire Carlile found that Google is testing that if you click on section buttons or local list tags in the local data on your mobile device, it will refine your search query in the main search box. This has not worked before, Google only shows reviews, updates, photos of that company, but the query does not change.

Claire posted this example Twitter – I can’t repeat this, so I’m wondering if this is a legit test or some weird Google error:

This works like the other search refinement filters we’ve illustrated earlier, even the ones I’ve written about just before but in this application it just doesn’t make much sense. What am I missing?

It changes the search box query, but it is not a new search or query in Google search.
