Google Table Search

Google has a very cool feature that restricts search results to pages that include tables. The snippets are table rows and you can import the tables to Fusion Tables.

"Google Tables allows you to search across public Fusion Tables and millions of web pages with data presented in a table. Once you find the right table, you can import the data to Fusion Tables for filtering, visualizations, collaboration, downloads, and access with the Fusion Tables API," informs Google.



There's a search box for this feature when you create a Fusion Table file, but Google Table Search is also useful as a standalone feature. It's interesting that there are a lot of Wikipedia pages that show up in the search results and a search for [the] returns about 39 million results (vs 25 billion web search results).
