What is Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" button?
As many of you noticed that Google’s homepage has an "I’m Feeling Lucky" button right next to the search bar. When this button was added to Google's homepage back in the 2000s, its aim was to skip the Google result page and take you directly to the top and most relevant result. With the introduction of Google Instant in 2010, Google basically offed one of its most dynamic features i.e. "I'm Feeling Lucky" button.
The most basic explanation of the button will be it skips search results and takes you to the best result available.
How "I'm Feeling Lucky" button works?
Normally, you type in an expression, press the Google Search catch (or press Return/Enter), and Google directs you to a result page that shows different sites coordinating your search query. The "I'm Feeling Lucky" button sidesteps that lists page and goes straight to the topmost page for the search query you entered.
For example: - try searching Google Chrome in Google search and clicking on the I'm Feeling Lucky button.
It will directly take you to the first search result.
This button allowed users to bypass the search result page by directly taking them to the first search result related to their search query. After the launch of Google Instant, a feature that automatically displays suggestions as users are typing their query, the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button doesn't serve that purpose anymore.
