    New Look to Google SERPS?

    I'm seeing a new look/design in the search pages today... at least I think so. Is everyone else seeing this or am I part of some type of test?

    All the titles have been reduced to a single shorter line it seems and the font or styling seems different? I was actually quite confused at first haha.

    Here's a screenshot:

    Hey Ross,

    Which part of the SERP are you referring to? Local?

    I was referring to the organic and the ads mainly... it seems like a different font and the titles have been shortened. Maybe I'm crazy?

    Something similar happened to us on Firefox. Checked it in Chrome and it's the same as it has always been.

    Mike just posted about this too and has heard it's supposed to go beyond test phase and roll out live.

    Interesting. I wonder how long before there is a promoted local listing in the Google SERPS?

    I know that you can have the location extensions in adwords, but I'm surprised it hasn't been looked at and/or tested at all.

    Has anyone noticed that the new SERP also shows your recent blog post(s) in the branded search results?
