Google Search tests more pagination options: more results, endless scrolling & more

Google is again testing different ways of pagination on the search results page on the desktop. We have discussed a few earlier, but the testing is now getting harder, at least it seems to be. The tests include showing the button with more results on the desktop, such as on mobile devices. Also shows page two, three, four, etc. Results as you browse.

In April, Google launched the More Results button for mobile search results. Google might then start testing (or maybe it was a bug) with the More Results button on the desktop. In the past week, many people have seen the button with more results on the desktop and in some of my tests I was able to replicate it.

This is what it looks like:

This is what you should see, the normal pagination:

Here are more screen shots:

Infinite scroll

As I discussed a few days ago, Google is testing infinite scroll results with these Googley separator bars. I see numerous variations on this. Here are some screen shots:

Larger fonts

Yes, Google also tests larger fonts as I reported yesterday.

Here is the font of normal size (click to enlarge):

Fragment placement

And more tests with Google testing by placing the URL above the title and the clip, also with a favicon on the desktop.

So yes, there are many tests or bugs going on now – whatever you want to call them.
