This is incorrect - its Search Engine Results Pages. As in, the pages that you receive as a result of a search on a search engine.

I think the term was coined here at WebmasterWorld? Not 100% sure.

Added: See this thread [webmasterworld.com]

"...Someone needs to get into Wikipedia and..."

Not sure what context that was. I participated in a thread approximately a year ago (located here [webmasterworld.com] in this community) so I'll just stay shut up, based on the time honored precept...

Better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than to run my mouth and confirm it !

Not sure what context that was.

Only that, an unconfirmed origin of the term might be this site. :-)

Actually in the UK the terms SERPs has been around awhile and it means 'State Earnings Related Pension'. Which is why it gets even more confusing seeing it here.

Somewhat related are the Ransom Notes. Ransom Notes are the site descriptions listed in the SERPs, usually appearing when the search engine grabs parts of the web page to display in the SERPs. Seems to happen when there is an inadequate meta description tag. It's not really a ransom note if the description used is from a coherent meta description tag, but it can still be referred to as a ransom note.
