A sign of things to come, perhaps? Based on this screenshot posted today on Flickr, Yahoo appears to be testing a new layout for its search results pages.
It looks very much like the new Yahoo homepage that launched a couple weeks ago, which suggests this may be soon become the default layout for Yahoo’s search results pages. The Yahoo logo, which appears in red and on the right side of the current search results page, is in purple and moved to the left here. The SearchPad feature is also moved from right to left. This new layout also mimics Bing slightly, with the list of “Related Concepts” appearing in the left-side column.
This seems to be a limited test; none of the SEL editors who tried today were able to see this new search results page layout.
