What is interesting is the new version is showing keywords highlighted in domain and file names. And hyphens are not required for them to pick up two word phrases.

Does anyone have cached copy of the page? Does it use the same index?

A guy in our office has had it for a month. Weird how it shows up only on his PC.

There's a screenshot on an older thread of the same topic, Krapulator havent got a spare hour to trawl them to find it :)

One thing I noticed about the test the other week is the total absence of a link ot the directory....who needs ODP, made me think how something like applied semantics could do the job that ODP categories *could do for themes.

That's most interesting, both parts, but especially the 'hyphens not required' part. Wow!

I'm still seeing the "old look" and whether one, two or three words, allinurl still picks up only hyphenated words or those otherwise easily discernable. This "new" version can make things quite interesting.

There's some screenshots of this new look over at the google weblog (search for it). I have to say that I'm not thrilled at how the adwords are looking...

I've seen it a few times. At first I thought I was surfing with images turned off.

I'm getting the old look, BUT for the last few days the logo keeps changing to different reasons - sometimes it's the normal one, other times it "Danks", "Fra˝šais", etc. (Although never "Espa˝ol", which is strange as I'm in Spain!). Anyone else seeing this?
