Google has been running an examination that eliminates references i.e. URLs from search result pages (for the absolute most part).
Does by doing this will result search pages definitely get better? Would you be in Google favor implementing this as a brand new style? Let us know in the remarks.
Various things is tested by Google with its search interface constantly. Sometimes the trials are covered by us, and sometimes we do not. Honestly there are actually far too many in order to keep an eye on. Matt Cutts has said that 20000 search experimentation’s are run by Google annually.
This figure is type of interesting though, as URLs are completely removed from search result pages (obviously unless there is authorship involved) by it. Search Engine Roundtable was tipped by Tecno-Net with a some screen caps.

In Google’s own forum, 1 person writes, “I seriously hope that this isn’t a forerunner regarding a real change to the search results page – we’ve had a great number of those recently, starting at removal of the whole instant preview to the messing around with green arrows to notice additional information. Google must also realize that people get used to and trust a precise format and anything different (similar to the Google merged results just for example) only confuses people and also makes them trust final results less.”
These are totally valid items, and it’s not soft to imagine Google implementing any change knowing that it could help spammers. It too makes the page not less uninformative, which seems like an action in the incorrect path. The variety who was seen by many people are clearly tame about any of it.
Still, Google has made a good amount of changes in past times with varying levels of popularity. Recent changes to Google Image search seem like quite unpopular with webmasters, just for an instance.
What do you consider? Should Google get rid of URLs on search result pages? Share your ideas.
