Google Testing 9 Organic Positions on Page 1

Google Testing 9 Organic Positions on Page 1


Over the last 2 weeks we’ve been noticing 9 organic results for page 1 instead of the usual 10. This doesnt seem to show up on any other pages.

On the 10th Feb we blogged about an error in search showing a list of catalogue copyright entry queries

I’m not saying this is at all related but it is odd to say the least.

Google search results showing 9 not 10 listings

Could be just some testing they are doing or it could be related to the new layout of the Adwords results with 4 positions at the top.

We will let you know more if we see anything else.
