Google Merge

Google is testing (Update: Google said this was a bug - learn more over here) displaying knowledge panels in the search results that do not show any attribution. When I test this, I get Google attributing Wikipedia for the content but in a test that @Venkatramani spotted, it shows a similar knowledge panel but has no link or attribution to Wikipedia for the content or images.

Here is what @Venkatramani sees and posted on Twitter:

Google Knowledge Panel Mobile No Atttribution

Here is what I see:

He said he was able to trigger this test for the query [free zones in UAE] on Android mobile using Firefox.

I doubt folks in the SEO community will be too happy about this test.
