Google New Layout – Fail

by David Naylor
Bronco - Digital Marketing Agency

Today I started getting the New Google layout, personally I don’t like it, and I feel that the ads blend into nothing most probably a good thing from Google’s point of view to get the clicks but when I searched for site:davidnaylor.co.uk (screen shot below) :

what I noticed was a little odd, that my sitemaps.xml url was malformed, I did a quick search for some other sitemaps but could not replicate the error or even identify the cause, After a little digging I searched and found Journalism.co.uk had a similar issue only this time on the homepage:

journalism2

and again here :
journalism

A little later I found that the Metro had the same issues :

metro2

and again :
metro

I’m only guessing but I think it’s when Google is Going to suggest a title and not use the original title from the page.
