Google will begin showing multiple results from the same domain in search engine listings, it has been announced. The news, which was revealed in an official Google blog, is said to have been introduced in order to help users find more relevant information through searches.
Writing on the official Google site, software engineer Samarth Keshava wrote:
"Today w?ve launched a change to our ranking algorithm that will make it much easier for users to find a large number of results from a single site. For queries that indicate a strong user interest in a particular domain, w?ll now show more results from the relevant site.
"W?re always reassessing our ranking and user interface, making hundreds of changes each year. We expect toda?s improvement will help users find deeper results from a single site, while still providing diversity on the results page."
The news of the algorithm change comes as Rob Ousbey, a search engine optimisation expert, discovered the search engine was also testing live updating search results. Writing on his own personal SEO blog, Rob commented:
"Earlier today, I noticed that my Google results were centered in the middle of the page. This evening, I spotted that you don't even need to hit the 'Search' button anymore - Google updates the results for you while you're typing."
At present, the feature is still in a testing page, so it is unknown if the search engine is set to introduce the new format to all users.
