Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
If you search for a broad term, say "Florida" you now get six refining lists at the top of the page. Click on one of those links such as "lodging guide" and you get a new list with "refinements".
Has anyone else found a change in the way Google is listing search results?
It will be curious to watch becuase my home page does come up number nine on one of these new directories. I wonder if my traffic will increase?
Seems the top listings are directories and visitor bureaus. After that they get less and less relevant.
This is not unlike Google's recent promotion of Froogle (i.e. using the top spot of the page results). I complained about Google's practice of taking the top spot last month for it's Froogle links as it's definitely siphoning off lots of traffic from the sites that used to occupy that space. Instead, searchers are drawn to Froogle and now Co-op. What's next?
