Just did a search, and EVERY result was URL only

I am searching on a 4-word phrase, and all of the results are URL only. Not even "supplemental". Just url only. No title, no description.

Is this a bug? Anyone else observed this?

If I could post specs, I would give the search. Since I can't I will say that the search is not something that I would consider uncommon, and there are no alternative search suggestions given.

I just tried the site:domain.com search on a particular site, and I get 7 different results depending on which Google datacentre I hit.

You might like to try several different datacentres too.

I ran into this the other day and boy, it was really freaky. A couple of searches returned all url only results. A couple of searches returned 6 or 7 regular results, then url only after that (I have my prefs set to 20 results).

Haven't seen it since it migrated over the crobb's neck of the woods.

I noticed this on one of my pages that ranks quite high for such a query... I thought that this happens only if Google are in the process of removing this url from their index...

It is very strange... Happens in one of those queries that you see for a few days in your logs and never hear them again... The query I saw this is such a one...

I just want to clarify: This was not a site: search, just as in crobb's example a normal 3 or 4 word search. It didn't affect one page or one domain, but all or most of the results that popped up.

Probably just a simple glitch, but a really weird one.

Yeah, I was searching for breeders for a certain type of dog in my city. All url-only results. Very unusual.

I spotted this last night searching for some different terms although it did seemed to be contained to Google.com only.

It seems Google changed ranking of inbound links - I've seen sites in SERP with only urls where Disallow: / in robots.txt.
Google can't read content there, but ranking well forbidden pages with good PageRank.
