Using Google today, you may have noticed that something feels slightly different — the look and feel of our search results have changed... making it easier than ever to find exactly what you're looking for.
Well, that last line is quite a bit of crap. I live in Canada but target the USA serps so usually I use search.aol.com or comcast so I can see the google USA results without personalization and geolocation problems. After reading this thread I used a proxy to see what you guys are seeing on the actual Google serps... wow, what a mess!
For a very popular 2 word term that I rank #1 for, my site shows up 1/2 way down the page in the second column. To make things even worse, when I add a location to the search like "key word New York" I still come up at #1 but the listing can not be seen without scrolling... 100% google crap shows with no organic listings at all! (1024 x 768 res)
Some people on here say that the Gorg is copying Bing with the look but Bing is way better as they at least show you the top 3 organic listings and not 100% paid and crap filler like Google.
I think if Google keeps going in this direction with their serp pages then they don't need to worry about Bing for competition, they need to worry about someone like hotbot.com as they even Hotbot has them beat with much cleaner looking serp pages!
