Funny .. I was doing a basic search for something and the main google search results came up like this

sponsored links in normal areas
googlebase stuff
link to (product results) results available through google checkout.
Prefer the classic view? (link)Don't categorize results.

stores (3) in a sub section with link to more stores
news (2) in a sub section with link to more
manufacturers (2) in a sub section with link to more
References (2) in a sub section with link to more
Reviews (2) in a sub section with link to more

at the bottom ...
More Categories for (search string):forums, blogs, comparison shopping

Great post, Bewenched. Does anyone know how they choose which groups to show first?

Very interesting. If Google offered search results in this format on a permanent basis then it would shake up the SERPs a huge amount. In Bewenched's example you would need to be in the top 3 stores to appear on the first page (barring Google base/checkout results). Of course if you offered news and reviews on your site then you may appear lower down the page as well as or instead of appearing as a store.

sem4u..
exactly ... if it stays that way... you would have to be top three to show up unless they click the <more> link.
