I'm seeing results from the same domain that aren't clustered

Google is no longer clustering pairs of results from the same domain name. A domain can now have SERP positions #5 and #10 for the same search term vs. the old format of #5 and #6. This is not a case of www.example.tld at position #5 and abc.example.tld at position #10. Both results use the same subdomain.

Indentations for all results have been removed. "More results from..." also appears to have been removed. It would appear that the algorithm is placing more emphasis on individual pages and less on entire websites.

nativenewyorker - I'm not seeing this at all. All searches I've run where pairs of results from the same domain appear on the same results page are clustered.

I believe someone else noticed unclustered results a short while back. It may be that Google is experimenting with various display methods... or it might have simply been a glitch. Google's pushing around a lot of data, and occasionally odd things happen.

I'm still seeing the normal clustering and indenting that I've been seeing all along. I wonder if what you're seeing is either 1) experimental, or 2) related to "Universal Search" - each of those results being from a different type of search result such as one is organic and the other is local, media, news or whatever.

How do I determine the server from which I'm retrieving results?

I've seen it before but only for subdomains. The same exact domain has always clustered. Will keep an eye open though.

Use Firefox with the ShowIP extension installed.

I see the same thing, although in my case the site is like five months old. Pages from that site rank separately for the same search query, but as time passes the separate pages are finally clustered. That grouping process can take months. Seems to be part of the integration process.

I've been seeing two pages but unclustered from the same domain now and then, without subdomains. I've also seen once or twice where there was way more clustering than usual.

Footnote for the local search phrase I was watching - both results are now gone from the top 2 pages.

I've been seeing this for about 3-4 weeks now.

Only seems to happen at 20-30 minute periods randomly throughout the day.
