New design for Google Universal Search?
The Spanish website OJOBuscador yesterday seemed to have picked what seems to be a new design for Google Universal. They had to go to Google Korea for it. There they performed a search for "Zen buddhist temple". What showed up was the resultpage you see below.
What strikes is the positioning of the universal results. The videos and pictures are placed to the right of the organic results. That's right, on the same position the ads are now placed.The ads are moved down.
Is this a Google test for a new lay out? Or is it something else? The positioning of the ads is surprising. It's hard to imagine that Google would lower the ads to a position which is not directly in sight of the searchers. Maybe very 'Zen-like' but not very commercial...
