Hi, i just went to Google and here is what it do:

The page is devide into small sections by headings.
Landmarks is like big headings.

Like in Google, there is a search landmark, where you can search;

main landmark
Your search results, with all the headings underneeth;

navigation landmark
The types of searches, books, video's, etc.

search landmark

main landmark

Content info landmark
Well, just what it says, the info of all the contents of the page,
like the links to the pages of the search, with the number of the
pages listed.

Regards,
Dewald.
