    The newly redesigned Google search results released yesterday has drawn massive criticism claiming it makes it harder to distinguish between advertisements or what's called organic search results. Ad clicks have dramatically increased since the change which is not surprising because Google makes most of it's money from ad revenues.
    It does look like Google may be backtracking on the new design because of the backlash though I'd wait and see.

    Google made a big change to search results that makes it harder to distinguish ads from regular results, and people are calling Google out for it

    Well, I for one am seeing some definite improvements in Google Search. For example I just googled "American Patriot" and this was the first pic displayed. :113:
