What is this new change I'm seeing today in the SERPs?

    Today when I do any sort of searches to check my keywords I keep getting a 1 site on top with a thumbnail of the site next to it and then a link underneath it which says "Show 3 more". Then after this is the normal SERPS. This is happening not only for global terms, but for geo-targeted terms as well.

    Why is G showing these sites(s) on top and then the rest of the SERPs? Are these featured or paid spots of some sort? I still see Paid advertising on top and then these listings under it.

    Anyone has any feedback on this?
