Google SearchWiki

SearchWiki was a Google Search feature which allowed logged-in users to annotate and re-order search results. The annotations and modified order only applied to the user's searches, but it was possible to view other users' annotations for a given search query.[1] SearchWiki was released on November 20, 2008 and discontinued on March 3, 2010.[2] All previously created SearchWiki edits are preserved on the logged in user's SearchWiki notes page.[3]

Google Stars replaces SearchWiki. Users no longer have the option to annotate or re-order search results. Instead a user clicks on a "star marker" which makes the entry appear in a starred results list at the top of a new search. The starred results list can be clicked to bring up Google Bookmarks where the list entries can be annotated.
