Stars in search replace SearchWiki. In our testing, we learned that people really liked the idea of marking a website for future reference, but they didn't like changing the order of Google's organic search results. With stars, we've created a lightweight and flexible way for people to mark and rediscover web content. For people who like annotations, we have Sidewiki, a more powerful way for people to contribute and discover helpful information next to pages across the Internet. All your existing SearchWiki edits will be preserved with your Google Account. You can learn more on our help center.

Stars in search are rolling out in the next couple days and will be available globally for all signed-in users.

Time after time I do use the blogoscoped search engine, yet fail to find any previous threads :/ (e.g. this time I searched for "google stars", seemed to be quite a sensible query and the google article was also barely twittered), either way, sorry for posting a duplicate.

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
