    Google SERP Layout changes


    Hey All,
    Just seeing if others are noticing major G SERP layout changes, like only showing 7-8 listing, local results box moving around and displaying on different points of the page, etc.


    Any comments appreciated,
    Thanks,

    Sorry I forgot to mention I am noticing this more for local searches,
    Now I am located in Seattle the only difference that I see and this must be based on IP is the Local Listing move back to the top.

    Example: seattle flowers

    You have your normal PPC
    "3 Natural links" - if those are natural anymore (with expandle map listing)
    Then you get your three local buisness from the google local listings
    Then you get you 4 more links after that

    Just too odd,

    I don't do local SERPs, but G appears the same/normal to me.

    Yeah I've been seeing the same thing for a few weeks. Local results (for city/state specific keywords) usually appear in threes either at the top followed by 7 "normal" natural results on first page or the 3,3,4 format you described. The overall layout has changed as well, but i'm sure there are plenty a post here about that.
