Google launches WDYL.com -- asks 'what do you love?'

Google has launched WDYL.com -- a new website that presents the results of your searches across 20 different Google products on one page.

WDYL.com features a simple gray page asking at-top "What do you love?" with a search bar to the side.

Once a user enters a search query, the site presents its results in 20 widgets containing many of Google's different types of searches, such as news, blogs, YouTube and Picasa photos.

The new website popped up  online with no fanfare, marketing or introduction by Google, but was reported first by TechCrunch, which posted a story after being tipped to the site's launch.

Google did not return a message seeking comment on the new website -- not surprising as the launch of "What do you love?" had been overshadowed on Tuesday by the debut of Google+, a new social network from the search giant and the company's latest attempt at taking on Facebook.

While not much more is known about WDYL.com, a 21st box at the bottom of each query results page promises "more coming soon."
