Hi,

I just did a search for online dating on Google (UK) and Yahoo (UK) and match.com has got there logo in the search results.

See screenshots: [cbg.me.uk ]

How did they do this?

Regards,
Garry

I see your screenshot, but I'm not getting the same thing when I do the search. Maybe it's a testof some kind.

From the screenshot it looks like it should be a paid search option, doesn't it? But I haven't heard anything about it to date.

Yer, now you say about being a paid option.
Never thought of that.

You didn't happen to do a "properties" on that image... Interesting. Does look like a test to me, but hopefully it stays a test.

Just check the properties as it was only happening in Firefox, and it seem to be coming from a multirow toolbar I am using and not google.

Screenshot: [cbg.me.uk...]

So it is nothing to do with Google or Yahoo.
