    I know that they have been testing changing how the search results show up for quite a while now, but I just checked earlier and for me it was the usual old Google design, but now its the new "spacy" search results.

    I think if you're not ranking in the top 3, you might need one heck of a title to catch any attention now!

    Your thoughts BHW?

    Cheers! :plane:

    Edit: Apparently some of the results show up as spacy where you would have to scroll down much further than before in order to see the other 7 results, while others have an updated look but still the same spacing as before...

    Here's some links to what I see that's new from the old stuff

    Earlier my navbar was regular but now thats black as well... I seriously doubt the only thing they are changing right now is the appearance so expect some algo changes as well

    The UI of google search is going through slight changes. It was being rolled out across the world gradually this week.

    LoL at first I saw that...I thought my laptop got some virus!! That was super ugly though, I'd prefer all whites instead of an ugly black topbar.

    Google is being hacked by a BlackHat member..hence the black toolbar :rolleyes:

    Google is showing you it's true "Black[hat]" colors :rolleyes:

    Google hired a new design director and he said "I know! Lets fuck everything up!" :rolleyes:

    one of my sites actually dropped from pr 2 to pr 0.
    But coincidentally i had updated my theme the day before so i thought i messed up.

    But then i see some of my other sites went from pr 0 to pr1 so i guess
    it wasn't my fault afterall. Also there are reports like this around the web too.

    Liking it so far. Though couldn't really figure out the rationale behind using the black color but do we actually care about it?
