    When is that from? I've never seen that many nested results, esp with descriptions.

    Based off the keyword Google is displaying the most relevant results. Since you are essentially typing in the exact domain name as it appears, its displaying you the home page plus any homepages that my be related to your search.

    Now I've never seen them netted like that before. Usually they are just links.

      You beat me to the punch...I was just about to comment on how the search term is an exact match to the domain name (and one thats quite specific too, not something like bestwatch.com).

      Like you I have never seen it listed that way either...interesting.

    El Goog experiment, perhaps? Pretty interesting; (and I see just links when I search). Given that you see more details, AND more pages, I would wager a guess that "they" are split testing what we see in your pic, vs. what I'm used to seeing. Given that the results are all based on "exact match", it could be that they want to see what effect those "type" of results would have on the CTR of the searcher. An interesting avenue to research "how it's done", if we see more of this (definitely eye-catching, I like it, at least).

    Yep, could be some sort of split testing... Screenshot is half an hour old.

    Here is another one with the key "skype". Apparently Google is testing sth. new here...

    It must be. I don't have anything like that when I search for Skype or Third Wave Berlin, which is why I was asking when it was. Cool find man.

    I get it myself. Here is a search for the norwegian word "Gave" or gift as you guys say. Notice the autority listing with wierd results is not named gave, but is simply the page ranking on top.

    It seems like this is a different type of the old link-based authority listing.

    I see it a lot on companies as well (search on business names). I think it looks pretty ugly. But seems like first place is going to be a lot more valuable. You just need to build 10 valuable and related pages and own the entire screen.

      Still not sure, if it is ugly or huge...! You are right, getting on #1 will be even more attractive and important, if Giggle decides to keep it like that..

  • I am not seeing this from my pc. What region of the world are you in? I wonder which areas there are testing this in and if they plan on doing it in all the markets. Interesting find.

    Google loves to throw a wrench into the results from time to time. They love to test things. I'm guessing you're part of a test that they're running.

    This search result isn't about EMDs, I had a similar search results in the SERPs yesterday for one of my own keywords (not my site). I wish I would have taken a screenshot to try & see what's going on.

    Looks like G is testing at random, I see OP screenshot returns normal Google Sitelinks now, & none of the nested links like the OP screenshot shows.

    When I did my search for my keyword, it wasn't an EMD.

    Well we know it has nothing to do with Google+.

    Out of the two screenshots already posted in this thread, one screenshot is logged into a Google account, you can tell by the little Google+ icon next to each search results description.

    The other screenshot has no Google+ icons (not logged in).

    Only 753 more possible things to test, lol.

    It's been a test which Google have been slowly rolling out since April this year.
    More information here:

    Personally I think it is very frustrating as you don't have control over what is displayed under the main results like you have within Google Webmaster tools.
    Also, with very short meta descriptions displayed within each of the results the actual meta description text becomes truncated after about 28 characters which makes it look unprofessional within the SERPs.

    Well, meanwhile - considering the exp i had with it today, i think it is impeding your navigation on the Google SERP... Looks impressive, but i can see no gain usability-wise.
