What do you think about the new Google search results style?
Google have been testing these for a while, but today they are fully live. Gone is the long-standing traditional hyperlink underline from the search links and the page has a more open style to it.
One thing in particular I am pleased to see is that sponsored links to pages (through Google Adwords) have the icon Ad
on an clear orange background next to them. That makes the more obvious compared to the almost invisible peachy colour background they did use.
I don't think the search pages look particularly pleasing though visually. Spacing doesn't seem quite right and I think the linked titles are a bit too big, but maybe because they are different they will take getting used to.
So, what do you think? Score out of 10? I'll give it 6/10.
