Google Testing

Last week we reported that Google was testing a new top bar with icons next to the search filters for maps, videos, images, etc. Now I am seeing additional reports of Google testing the icons not just in the search bar but also in the search results page.

Brodie Clark posted these findings earlier but I am seeing a lot more people report on Twitter that they are not just seeing the new top bar but also these icons in the search results section.

The images I am showing below come from @DouglasASewell and @SEOSouravMani on Twitter.

I suspect Google may be launching this soon.
