google puzzleOn Friday, I thought there was a Panda update and apparently I was wrong. Well, I wasn't 100% wrong, there was an update for diversification of the search results.

Google's Matt Cutts said on Twitter Google released an update that "improves the diversity of search results in terms of different domains returned."

Did they really? Search for [bobs furniture in Google and check out how there is one listing for, then the Google Places and the rest of the 9 results are from Is that diverse? And I see this on tons and tons of examples. I have for months and months!

really diverse?

So was this really an update on diversifying the search results or am I crazy?
