Google Shows Weird Experiment On YouTube Search Results [Updated For Non-Juiciness]
Update: “Nothing juicy to see here!”
Seeing a weird banner in your search results? No worries-fix in the works. Nothing juicy to see here!
Some people (including myself and others around me) are seeing a weird message at the top of YouTube search results pages. It says: “Experiment: There may be confidential content in your search results. Please do not share outside Google.”
It is unclear what this experiment is exactly, but as reddit user tk338 suggests, “This is mere speculation, but it looks like something only employees should be seeing. Someone could have changed some privileges or something accidentally? In which case a privacy breach for Google!”
Another user suggests that it could have something to do with new social media tie-ins.
We’ve reached out to Google, and will update if we hear back.[via reddit]
