Google Search Testing Rounded Favicons

Google is testing a rounded corner design for the favicons displayed in the mobile search results on snippets. Brodie Clark shared some examples on Twitter saying “On the back of recent testing of favicon sizing on mobile, a rounded version with a grey background has appeared. Similar to previous tests, the brand name/domain is also repeated at the top.”

Here is a snippet of the rounded favicon test (click to enlarge):

Compare that to the normal squared off corners (click to enlarge):

Here are more examples from Brodie:

I think the rounded look gives them more uniformity in the search results interface.

Google Product Grid Results Are Organic

Google Search Results Rolls Out Much More Visual Design

We’ve been seeing a lot of grid-like formats with products and shopping results. We know some are ads and some are organic. John Mueller of Google just added official Google representative confirmation that many of these are organic – if you don’t trust that there is no ad label on them as evidence enough.

Well, yea, these are organic. John responded on Twitter saying “They’re organic results too. This is one of the reasons it’s good to dig into our ecommerce site guidance if you sell products.”

Honestly, like I said before, I am not a huge fan of these grid formatted results for products. At least, they should be in some “click to expand” feature so you can see more. So show one line of these results with a click to expand. It is just too much in my opinion, even if Google is confident of the intent of the query.

Also, not all of these image snippets need markup to work, although these with the pricing and reviews probably do…
