Spotted by a reader, Bing is testing a new real-estate search tool and embeds MLS and property data directly into the search results. When testing queries around real estate and homes for sale, the callout allows for the searcher to sort by price, bedroom, bathroom and more. This clearly could make a huge dent in the organic traffic for real estate listing sites like Zillow and Trulia and if Google adopted something similar could be a huge shift in those companies search traffic.
For the query ‘money’, Time Magazine is currently getting a new side-scrollable format for in-depth articles. It reminds me of the old carousel format from local search that went away late last year.
I was able to recreate the results by searching ‘money’ on my iPhone in Safari. There were 12 articles in total — all partially matching the original query. All of the articles were from Time.
Have you seen anything similar in mobile search? This is likely a testing format for in-depth articles with Google’s new focus on mobile search.
