Google's "Show More Results" Plus Box

More and more people are noticing Google's new more results user interface, where it shows a plus box, instead of taking the user to a site command like search result.

You can likely reproduce the plus box yourself for a search on sitelinks. You will notice the page looks like this:

Google More Results Plus Box

If you click on the blue link plus box that reads, "Show more results from googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com" it will expand to show you five additional results:

Then it will add the option to take you to a site command search, on a new Google search results page, if you want that.

This is something Google has been doing or testing since early August of this year. This was the old way:

Hi Rusty, I just wonder if "normal" people will really use it. We see it, and discuss about it and wonder what opportunities it can or could bring us, but people like my mom, dad or g/f never look at those things. They click away on whatever they like or seem interested in, but dont seem to care for these kind of things.

I noticed the "more results" Google search feature from day 1, which was WAYYY back in the day. The plus sign is more user-friendly.
