Google Quietly Drops In Depth Articles Title In Search Results

Google has quietly dropped the in depth articles title in the search results, blending them more into the organic listings.

Dr. Pete spotted this way back in March, but honestly, I thought it was either a bug or a test Google would never launch. They actually did launch it.

Here is a screen shot from @SEOlytics of the before and after:

On Wednesday, Dr. Pete noticed the change went live in the Google results and was shocked. He wrote on Twitter:

Indeed, very radical.

I am honestly surprised they removed the title from the results.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

This post was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today. FYI, I am offline today so I won't see your comments until likely Sunday or Monday.
