Searching Google using your phone can result in sometimes lengthy URLs websites, and since our mobile devices have smaller screens compared to our desktops, the URLs are sometimes cut off so you don’t really get to see the entire URL.
Google is on the case. Google has updated its URL presentation in its search results. You can see it in the image here. On the left is how Google used to display its URL, and the right is the new way. Google has organized it in a cleaner way so that you know which section of a particular website you are visiting. No more guessing.
Google has said on its website that these changes are being rolled out gradually and it is only applicable for mobile search. If you haven’t seen it yet, you may see it soon. And of course you won’t see any change on your desktop search, because it’s not meant for desktop. Only mobile. Google also mentions that the site name change is US-only for now but it is expected to make its way worldwide soon. Consider it a bit of spring cleaning on Google’s part. They like to have things tidy and neat in search.
