    Has anyone else seen these kind of results for #1 in Google? Talk about getting every click for a search term, this is a pretty dramatic change if this is how Google plans to showcase video that hold the #1 slot. Perhaps this is why they are cracking down on botted views and spam so heavily. What do you all think? Have you seen results like this yet?

    I also saw this the other day. The video still seems to redirect to it's original source though, instead of playing in the page. Which is a good thing I suppose. They made that mistake already when they started showing expanded images in image search.

    It would make sense for it to redirect to the page so that Google can trap you in YouTube land and get more clicks haha. I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing it. So far I am only really finding it with songs, but I've only starting looking into it today. Instant $$$ if you can hold a #1 spot with a decent KW.
