Add Google Search Result in iGoogle Gadget

Google Search tests a new feature that lets you add an iGoogle gadget corresponding to a search result. For now, the link “add to iGoogle” is displayed for a small number of sites (BBC, New York Times, National Geographic,, NPR, Flixster, Epicurious) and it’s not clear if publishers can enable it.

After clicking on the link “add to iGoogle” displayed next to a BBC result, Google added BBC’s official gadget to my iGoogle page. Unfortunately, Google also set a cookie value so that every time I go to, it redirects me to iGoogle. Clicking on “classic home” at the top of the page solves this problem.
