It skips the whole results page, and takes you directly to the first page it finds.

This button is best used when searching for the phrase " French Military Victories "
or defeats, if you want to be amused, give it a try,

The above are examples of what's called "Googlebombing" (there's even a page on it in Wikipedia)


There are ways to manipulate Google's search engine to get your site higher up the list and there have been various amusing exploits like the one above.
