Google Adjusts Site Results
Google slightly adjusted the way they display results when you search for a domain name. Previously when you searched for e.g. yahoo.com
, you received a special one-result-only page that was formatted different from usual results. I always disliked this alternative formatting ’cause it would take you a second or so longer to find e.g. the cache link. The new result formatting is an improvement as it just displays the site in question at the top of the SERPs, followed by more sub-domains (if available) or related sites... you don’t need to switch modes.
For reference, here’s a screenshot of the old design...
