Well, let’s face it; most of the Googlers do not know what the “I’m Feeling Lucky” Button is and what is it doing on the Google homepage.
What is I’m Feeling Lucky Button?
To get the facts right, the Button takes us automatically to the first search result for the query we have searched about. Ordinarily for the search query, Google returns the list of matched results out of which we select the link that suits us the most but the I’m Feeling Lucky button skips the search results page and goes directly to the first ranked page for that search phrase.
How to use it?
For the search phrase that is most obvious say to download Firefox we type “download Firefox” instead of searching usually, if we press the I’m Feeling Lucky Button we will be redirected to the page that will give us the download link.
Some more facts
Google loses around $110 million in annual revenue from this button alone due to the fact that this button prevents it from showing the ads, then why are they still providing this link?
