Where did Google Wonder Wheel Disappear too?

I've only just noticed today that after a huge interface change of Google I am no longer able to access or see any sign of the Wonder Wheel - does anyone know if Google has completely removed this function or if this is a problem Google have made?

Thanks,

Liam

I hope this is not a permanent change.  The Wonder Wheel was awesome for really drilling into topically relevant themes.  I can only guess at the motives for removing it.  Logic would tell you that perhaps something even cooler than the Wonder Wheel will be rolled out soon.  I think it was a tool that helped SEO professionals build more topically relevant sites.  Hopefully it will be back soon.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Quick answer:  Wonder wheel has been problematic for some time now (maintenance of the system is a headache). The idea is a great one, so we're looking into ways to improve the main idea while creating an even better user experience.  Hang in there, the ability to explore the space of related searches is a good one, and we're hoping to be back with a real improvement sometime soon.

I sure hope a version of this comes back soon.  I just discovered it and it was incredibly helpful.  A real timesaver in my research and writing.

As a college teacher who includes searching strategies in her curriculum, I am no longer able to include the Wonder Wheel.  Please keep us posted so that my students are exposed to the most useful and current tools.
