Google Continues Testing Top Of Page Services Links

Via Google Blogoscoped, another round of the Google services navigation testing, where Google has put the “Other Searches” links normally above the search box at the top of the page.

This type of placement was first spotted last month on both the Google home page and on search results pages.

The latest version changes the color of the bar from blue to a light gray and moves some of the content in that bar from the right to the left.

Postscript: Both Garett Rogers and Philipp Lenssen show, based on Webbsnack’s post, how you can also test this out.

Simply paste the following code into your browser while you are on a result page to try it out (I added a few spaces for formatting purposes — remove them before you try):

javascript:document.cookie = “PREF=ID=fddb01133a87d314: LD=en:CR=2:TM=1177334998:LM=1177334998: GM=1:S=OOg0FEVzpPplxe9J; path=/;”
