Google's Search Result Display Pattern

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4355188 posted 11:36 am on Aug 25, 2011 (gmt 0)

Since last couple of days i experienced some changes in Google's search result display pattern. As for example:

When i searched for the keyword "electrical gadgets" on Google.com, the very first result appeared which shows quite different snippet as it's description. Like

Electrical Gadgets
www.xyz.com/electrical-gadgets.html - CachedSimilar
10+ items Many electrical gadgets can help you control the amount of ...

* La Crosse Technology BC-900 smart battery charger lets you charge ...
* This remote control outlet system comes with a hand held remote control unit ...
* Actiontec 85 Mbps powerline network adapters allow you to set up a home ...

By digging deeper, I analysed that which type of keywords are giving such snippets:
1) Product specific keywords
2) Listing type landing pages

Has someone else also noticed same kind of search experience. If yes then please share your views as well and spread some light in this context.

Google results are different if you are logged in or not. They differ from time (search engine from Google needs one month to check all web content if I'm not wrong and this is time delay) and content (IBM finds web content within two days under some statements). You have Adwords on the right hand side where is selling. On the left hand side you have product specific keywords and other stuff. What do you like to confirm actually? Maybe system?

Each year, Google changes its search algorithm up to 500 - 600 times. While most of these changes are minor, every few months Google rolls out a major algorithmic update that affect search results in significant ways. For search marketers, knowing the dates of these Google updates can help explain changes in rankings and organic website traffic.
