Google Officially Launches New Logo and Search Page Layout
It’s official! Google has officially launched their new search engine result pages (SERPs) format and also an updated and cleaner looking logo.
We first noticed Google testing their new SERPs format back in April.
Since then we have been left to wonder if and when the new search page layout would go live ad if there were any changes that would be made to their format as well.
It appears that the only thing missing from the early tests is the “Not Entirely Unlike” section.
From “Not Entirely Unlike” to “Something Different”
Google Logos – Then and Now
From the Official Google Blog about the logo changes:
In addition to the left-hand side changes, we’ve updated our look and feel in terms of our color palette and our logo. These changes are slight, keeping our page minimalist and whimsical, but make our overall look more modern.
I definitely like the new logo and would have to agree with their assessment.
They have incorporated many of the same Search Options that were previously, and many currently still are, located at the top of the pages.
You can toggle to show “More” or “Fewer” Search Options.
Filter and Views
You can toggle to show “More” or “Fewer” Search Tools. Any time
The Custom Range Option lets you choose a date range “From:” a specific date “To:” a specific date. A calendar will even pop-up to assist you select the dates.

This is terrible! I hate Bing and the way they have it set up and that is why I use Google. Please don’t change to this method because I love the way it works currently.
i hate this new layout its well annoying! get rid of it soon.
I seriously Hate, it clutters a looot that left hand side bar, heard lots of comments of people to just switching to Bing since there is no difference anymore…
I cannot stand this new layout – I agree with others, it cuts down on the space I am actually using and I don’t need that stuff on the side — please, please change back QUICKLY!
Can’t say I like this update. Google are slowly cluttering their offering. I liked this layout when Ask brought it out as Ask 3D. But Google’s offering has always been that they have gone for a minimalist approach.
Could this be the next change in search… the abandonment of the simple search box?
This is among the worst ideas google ever came up with. They didn’t have to fight hard to compete against bing, it was setting up itself for failure with the crappy UI and poor search. Looks like google is working hard to send its users to other search engines. I hate this so much that I’m desperately looking for another search engine now.
I’ve been trying to get rid of that useless sidebar since 2 days!! How do I remove it?
Hi Laurelie, I’m afraid that there is no “Off” setting for this Google navigation side bar.
Your new format REALLY sucks, guys. Didn’t anybody in the company remind you of the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? With this search format you’ve changed the saying to, “If it ain’t broke, BREAK it!” C’mon, at least give us the option of changing back to the old, very usable, and quick-scrolling format you used to have. I HATE this!
Hate this new layout also. Have to scroll too much to find things, hate all the side stuff. Will also be looking for a new search engine.
