Google to Implement New Search Card/Box Layout Design
January 24, 2017
Are you seeing the card format in Google search for the first time?
It was 2013, when this card style layout was first noticed.
From time to time, Google keeps on experimenting with the looks of SERP. Still now, they have not changed the look of Google search; it is only a test.
The whole year of 2016 has witnessed this test many times.
With the commencement of 2017, searchers again observed a new layout.
Though it is considered as a test, many people are noticing this quite often. It may appear in a certain Google account, whereas you may not get a similar look in your other Google accounts at the same point of time.
This time, each and every result is coming in separate white boxes on white background.
Last time in 2016, it was noticed that results were shown within white boxes but on gray background.
As per reviews, people are not liking the card layout design, because this format is consuming more space of the page. So, people have to scroll down more to get all the results. This is not at all user friendly and can be considered as a time-taking process.
May be for this reason, it is still a design and not a launch. Google is still experimenting with this card style layout and not introducing it. They may be waiting patiently and listening to the users’ reviews, so that, they do not come up with something which people refuse to accept.
If anyone has noticed something similar or have some other opinions regarding this format, please share your views.
