    It was never part of Google India. I used to access it from google.com/ncr. But now even that is removed.  hmm

    They even have a paid directory for it, did anyone know? I was about to list mine on it when I saw it cost 5 bucks. Something about they would use your site as an example or something. Now it's gone, strange,,,,,

      I saw the domain name is up for sale on the link.  Looks like they are flogging it off perhaps?

    Wonder Wheel isn't gone. Just turn off Instant Search and you'll see it.

    Sometimes it disappears for some reason. It doesn't always work for some queries either.

    I'd heard of the Wonder Wheel before but never tried using it until reading this very informative thread.  Now I have tried it, and I can see why people were worried when they thought it had disappeared!
