Google Testing Two Videos On One Web Search Result
Ever since the launch of Google Universal Search, Google has been showing videos in the web search results. But sometimes, there are more than one video shown in the web search results and, in many cases, those multiple videos will take up the space of 2 or more of the ten results shown.
Philipp Lenssen reports that Google is now testing showing a second video result on the same search result as the first video result.
For example, the search that triggered this test was for iphone in Google Canada. What I see are two video results beneath a news result, which is beneath a web result. In short, I see a total of 11 results, two of them videos, one news, and the remainder are web results. But in the screen shot that Philipp is displaying, Google is placing the two video results on the same line, which brings the results shown from 11 to an even 10.
Here is what I see, but the arrow symbolizes how Google is testing moving the result:

Personally, I am a fan of two videos on one search result, as opposed to two individual search results.
