Google has a new update. Google search results on Chrome display differently. Now, the text is larger (without zooming) and the URL is shown above the website title. The aim of Google is to no longer display multiple results from the same website unless in rare cases. In fact, “the results are effective” as said by the company’s public search liaison Google’s Danny Sullivan.
Here’s how it looks now
“Have you ever done a search and gotten many listings all from the same site in the top results? We’ve heard your feedback about this and wanting more variety. A new change now launching in Google Search is designed to provide more site diversity in our results….”

The SERP change will remove the hassle of seeing more than two listings from the same website in the top results. However, there can be extreme cases when the system might show more than two listings but only when Google will detect its relevancy higher. It will treat the subdomains as part of the main domain meaning Google will consider the main and subdomain as single-site unlike earlier when they were treated different sites for diverse purposes.
