Google Tests Search Result Change
A minor update to a Web site rarely makes headlines -- unless you're talking about Google. The company began testing a tweak to its search result pages, and the news quickly spread across the Web on Thursday. In the test, Google moved links to each of its sites to the left side of search results.
Below each search category, such as Groups and Local, is a graph showing the quantity of results. "We're continually testing new interfaces and features to enhance the user experience. This is one such test, which only a small percentage of users will see," Google officials said in a statement.
