Google Testing New Layouts For Video

They say immitaion is the greatest form of flattery. Make up your own mind if Google is flattering YouTube:

“Google Video is experimenting with a new, more YouTube-like layout for video pages. To see this, go to a video page and enter …

javascript:setCookie(‘np’,’old’);window.location.reload();

… into the address bar. Now hit return and click on “Try our new page layout” to the right”.

Speaking of Google videos, Matt Cutts has published another one on Webmaster Tools. One of the cool new features is the option to specify either www or non-www urls.

google.com/support can answer general user questions.

http://www.google.com/webmasters/ provides tools to
– tell Google that www.domain.com and domain.com are the same
– test out robots.txt files
– discover crawl errors that Googlebot saw
– see some spam penalties
