    I have seen it but I hadn't yet seen it on first page results. Starting around page 3 or 4 for a lot of the keywords in my niche i start to see 3 ads on the top and 3 ads on the bottom, effectively limiting search results. Sometimes its actually less than 7....

    Less organic results, more paid results. More click on the ads, more money. Buy GOOG.

    I suspect the further they push it, the more people it will piss off. Someone might be even so pissed as to release a new friendly type of virus, that writes this simple line into the hosts file:

     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    I have seen this. Bing does this too.

    I think Google's agenda is to try and manipulate the paid into looking like the organic. Eventually, page 2, will be the new page 1 for organic.

    I found that these results are typically when your search queries are brands or pictures.
    For example: pictures of dogs

    However, when you place an adjective in front of the word that triggers the 7 search results, you get the 10 again.
    For example: funny pictures of dogs

    So brands and pictures. What else has anyone found that triggers a 7 result page?

    This also makes me think more about putting a much stronger emphasis on building good domain authority than before.

    It's not that bad if you have pages at position 6-7, coz in the regular listing of 10 people click more on the 9th or 10th than on the results between 4-8.

    Yep, page 2 will be the new page one for organic results the way google are going on about things. Madness.
