How search suggestions work in SharePoint Server 2010

A while ago I wrote about one of the new features for end users with SharePoint 2010 is that suggestions are provided while you are typing a search query which is commonly referred to as search suggestions in SharePoint 2010. The TechNet posting Manage query suggestions (SharePoint Server 2010) now explains how and when these suggestions are added:

Query suggestions are automatically created over time for any query that has a specified number of result click-throughs. By default, a query suggestion is created after users click through six times.
