When performing your online searches, have you ever used Google’s “I’m Feeling Lucky” button? How does it work? Here we discuss that mysterious button in detail and explain how it works.
It would not be overstating the case to call Google – the “Einstein” of search engines. We cannot imagine life without Google. Every day, we search for everything from entertainment to education to shopping on Google. Google and the internet are the same thing for many people.

Aside from Google Search, the company provides a range of web tools and services such as Gmail, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Cloud, Google Play, and Google Drive. The most popular service that Google provides, though it provides many others as well, is still its search engine. It is the most visited site in the world and has remained on the most visited sites list for a long time.
Many Google search users might not be aware of the I’m Feeling Lucky button, a feature that even the most experienced users haven’t used. You’ll find this button just below the search query box when visiting Google’s global domain, google.com.
In recent years, Google has started showing search results automatically as the user types a search query into the search box, which has made the Google Search button on the Google homepage kind of redundant, since a user is now unable to type a search query, and then press the button. Nonetheless, the I’m Feeling Lucky button is still functional, and it can be selected before typing any words into the search box.

I Feel Lucky Button by Google – How It Works
It’s impossible to predict how the I’m Feeling Lucky button will behave. It isn’t totally unpredictable, however, since Google displays pages in a certain pattern, but you are never sure what page Google will return when you click on it. Describe your I’m Feeling Lucky experience below.
Google’s homepage has a button that starts rolling your mouse over and stops at a random text when you bring you cursor over it (see the full list below). Your cursor can be moved and hovered over the button to change the selected text. Depending on the button text selected before you clicked the button, the button will take you to a web page after clicking it. As an example, you will be taken to a Google doodle page when the button text is I’m Feeling Doodley, where you can view detailed information about an earlier featured Google doodle.
If you are bored online, you might find this interesting to explore. Furthermore, if you use Google as your homepage, you can try the I’m Feeling Lucky button when you open your browser periodically to see what interesting pages Google will display that day.

On Google homepages in other languages, the phrases may be different depending on the country. The following is what we found on Google’s English-language global homepage. There will naturally be differences in button texts and their variations in other languages.
Having a creative mood
During our test, we were redirected to a Google Arts & Culture page about a painting depicting “British officers greeting Chinese mandarins” displayed at Hong Kong’s Museum of Art when we selected the I’m Feeling Artistic option.
I’m curious about that
On selecting this option, you will be taken to a search result page with a random question answered for you at the top. The two questions in our tests, for example, were: What was the name of the capital of New Spain? And what animal is said to have the fastest metabolism? When the Curious option is selected, it appears Google displays a different question when you click the I’m Feeling Lucky button.
The Doodles are Feeling Doodley
You’ll be sent to a random Google Doodle page when you click the lucky button with this option, as I mentioned above. This was the one we received.
Giving Me a Feeling of Generosity
You are directed to the Featured Projects page on Google One Today, where you can learn more about projects around the world that support education, natural life, family, farming, and water. If you wish, you can make a donation.
I’m Feeling Hungry
Whenever you click the I’m Feeling Hungry button, you will be taken to a page in Google Search which uses the query “restaurants”. Alternatively, you can make a reservation or order one from the list if you are really hungry.
According to our understanding, this option will send you to various pages related to games, entertainment or relevant topics. The Muppet creator Jim Henson, whose 75th birthday is today, is the subject of this doodle page.
It Makes Me Feel Puzzled
The first option is more fun, as it starts you playing A Google A Day, a game where you answer questions with the help of Google products such as Search, Maps, etc. Do we have a chance to beat you?
I am in a great mood
It’s a pun, of course… Upon clicking, you are taken to a page for searching for images of the sky, galaxies, and basically anything stellar. A search for the Orion Nebula was generated as a result of our test.
Instead of taking you to the Google Hot Trends page, this option takes you to the Google Trends page where you can check the latest trends in your country and the world at large.
It feels great to be alive
The second lucky option takes you to the Google Arts & Culture page. In our attempt, we were directed to a page about the Old Town of Vila, a city in central Spain.
Depending on what text you select in the button, the I’m Feeling Lucky button may send you to totally different pages, but keep in mind that the results may change any time depending on your location and the date when you check them.
