No surprises here: Google has begun experimenting with adding Digg-like voting functions to their results page -  though ratings won’t be shared publicly, making individual preferences visible only to the searcher himself.

Google will  remember users’ preferences each time they search for the same keywords (when logged in), though an option to view the original query results will always be available.
