Comments below:

Tags - Move related tags to the sidebar confuses the purpose of the
page having them as part of the results
Pagination - Remove the top pagination control. Standard behaviour is
scroll down -> next scroll down ->next (see all websites)
Results - Display tags for each package inline to help use choose
which once to click through [IS THIS POSSIBLE?]
Search box - make each example in the "E.g. 'geo', 'shakespeare',
'science'" links
Resources icons - Not very useful as a link. Better to display inline
the number of resources available  [IS THIS POSSIBLE?]
Filters - 'downloadable' isn't a term used elsewhere. Change to
'Packages with downloads or other resources'
Filters - explain 'open license' better
Results make use of a:visited to help browsing
No results - better call to action to add a package e.g. 'Do you know
of a dataset relating to $search_term? help improve CKAN by adding it'
No results - 'No results' and '0 packages found' are displaid, choose one.
