Googles example in the blog now pushes out the top seven results for one domain. Absolutely unbelievable and unhelpful. [google.com...]

Depending on how wide spread this is, it could be the biggest and most devastating update since Florida.

At this point, it looks like it may be restricted to the "at" operator that we have seen talked about in the last week. The at operator is effectively being used as a site: operator under certain conditions. However Google doesn't document or discuss that in the blog post.

Looks like Google has killed search serendipity. People use search engines to explore the web but Google, in its very finite wisdom, has turned Google into a phone directory.

When Google introduced universal search, one of their justifications was that it would bring more variety and more choices to searchers. Actually, the main result was the greatly increased exposure of Youtube videos. Once they accomplished that, they started moving in the opposite direction, toward less variety and fewer choices.

Recently I've been seeing three Wikipedia pages at the top of a lot of my searches. But the second and third pages usually turn out to be only remotely relevant to the search term. Apparently Google wants three Wikipedia pages at the top no matter what.

It seems to me that google is threatening to become a clone of 1999 altavista. More and more i'm seeing the top 20 odd searches domainated by a handful of sites, particularly if there is a local placename element to the search.

A quick example is "whats on in ..."
Search that for a major US city provides 4 different sites in the top 23 results, and 1 site for the first 7!

I'm not a google hater at all, but if anything is going to drive people to bing it's this.
