Most have probably already noticed the new Google layout. The bar on the left includes a lot of new options and categories, including "Shopping" and "Related Searches."
Here's a link that discusses the changes in-depth:
What do you guys think about all this? How will this affect Hubpages, if at all?
I don't like it really, to be honest. One of the reasons why I liked Google is that it was simplistic in design.
I wonder if the page is heavier to load?
Once a month my internet crawls and practically the only internet page I can open is google. It will be a huge disappointment to me and others with slow internet connections if it is.
I'm still not seeing it, so I suppose I'll reserve judgement until then. But, I do agree with Origin that I like the clean look of Google. Hopefully this won't muck that up too much.
Some of the left hand options look interesting. I'll just have to wait and see.
I can't find the pay-per-click info on the new Google keywords. Has anyone managed to locate this?
No doubt changes....more, really keeps us on our toes and thats a good thing sorta reboots our brains if you will. We just gotta adapt to this as in our line of work it's a must to evolve with the ever changing landscape of the internet world.

We are always reading the forums, taking feedback and working behind the scenes. Sometimes Google prefers that we keep some information private if they plan on making a formal announcement. We are expecting an announcement from Google this week, but it may slip till next. We...

I've noticed that since the new layout change that we have less options to share our hubs - no Digg or StumbleUpon button. I also don't see Google + either. Were these left off because they are not considered valuable places to share our hubs or another reason? I'm wondering about the reasoning and...

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...
