What about a different kind of auto-suggestion that might be better? 

Searcher starts typing: "Ho.."
        - Are you looking for an answer to a question?
        - Are you looking for a product review?
        - Are you looking for a place?
        - Something else?

Of course this would probably take a complete revision of how DDG or any other search engine works, but I always thought this would be cool and help searchers find what they're really looking for on the web without so much nonsense.

Actually, DuckDuckGo already does this when there's an ambiguity. Try

And since autocomplete currently searches Zero-Click-Info.... in a roundabout way, it's already implemented.
