Today in Google SERPs I saw "Web definitions for" before main results go. for example: google.com/search?hl=en&ne ...

Can you tell me is this new feature?

Why??? To block spam from .ru domain? :(

Igor, "what is" is a soft trigger for the define: operator.

And yes, I once blacklisted ".ru" because of the high spam to normal posts ratio containing that string. Unfortunately, there are other country domains (like Tonga) I had to block as well. I've removed .ru from the blacklist for now and will see how it goes.
