First time I'm seeing an additional "google" generated query included in the serp. Anyone else running across this?

Thanks +John Mueller​ for sharing the search quality raters guide.
We've put an updated version of our Search Quality Rating Guidelines online. If you're a search-geek, this is going to be interesting reading material tonight :)

As mentioned in the blog post, these are for evaluators who assess the quality of Google’s search results—give us feedback on our experiments. Ratings from evaluators do not determine individual site rankings, but are used help us understand our experiments. The evaluators base their ratings on guidelines we give them; the guidelines reflect what Google thinks search users want.

Recently granted patent, 9/8/15. First in awhile that I've seen with a google serp image -fig 12 A screenshot illustrating inserting a query parameter set into a browser address bar.

Fig 6 still blows my mind. IF/Then statement 
Is the Query data text...No-Data is image...then convert the query data into text, process text, create query parameter, transmit query parameter to the search engine, end...Crazy to think that all happens in about 1/2 second.

Just launched a site, going through the routine, and G sends me this GSC to do list.
all makes sense, but #4
How does sharing  access [to GSC] with co-workers help Google better understand how to crawl the site???

In Google: First You Get Impressions, Then You Get Position, Then You Get Clicks.
By Perry Bernard - Organic Search (SEO) Specialist.

The answer to "why is my website not in Google search right now?" is often one that business owners find hard to get their head around. The fact is, getting ranked takes ages. Here's some cold hard facts you probably need to be aware of to have a realistic view of what might happen:

1. First, after launching a new website, you have to wait until your website starts getting search impressions in Google search. Usually, that starts off on some page you don't want it to be on, like page 27 of search. NOT on page 1.

2. Next, you do some more waiting. Eventually, your website starts getting some half decent rank positions, like the occasional page 1, a bunch of page 2 and a lot more on page 3 and later.

3. Finally, after you've waited some more, you get enough searches getting you onto page 1 that you get some half decent traffic from it.

Images from Google Search Console. Find out more about GSC here: https://goo.gl/8fKWSO

This process might have taken 6-12 months. And: it depends on your website deserving the rank position relative to its rank competitors. This does not relate to whether or not your business is bigger or better at serving its clients than the competition. Self confidence is not a ranking factor in Google.

If your website isn't sufficiently SEO'd to be better than the rank competitors' websites you will never reach the 3rd stage of this process.

These are the cold hard facts of Google organic search.
