Google Showing DMOZ Listings at Bottom of Results Page
No more DMOZ listings under URL's. ODP categories at bottom of page.

Anyone else seeing that the DMOZ categories are no longer showing under individual site URL's, but rather at the bottom of the results page?

This obviously makes it more difficult to determine by looking at the Google results which sites are in DMOZ. What other ramifications might this change have?

I wonder if this could be just something they are testing out as the KW phrase I track still has it listed the old way.

Semantically DMOZ, and 'my bottom' are probably related. It's just more improvements taking effect :)

I don't see this at google.com at the moment.
What google-url are you using?
probably some country-specific domain?

It could be the new google look magic cookie.

The new Google look cookie seems to remove ODP categories altogether - both from individual listings and from top/bottom of page. The Google directory tab is also removed and the directory relegated to a separate "More options" page.

What you are seeing must be something different.

What I am seeing is *NOT* the same as the results from the Google magic cookie. I am getting these results on www.google.com, from the US. I have noticed that I only see this when the result page is set to "10 results per page" in my Google preferences, as opposed to the "100 results per page" that I normally browse with.

Also, it seems to be much more common on single keyword, generic phrases. Try browsing for "widget", with 10 results per page.

I have a screenshot of what I'm seeing. If anyone is interested I will either post it online, or you may sticky me.
