Google tries dropping the estimate number of results in the search results

Google seems to be testing removing the estimated number of results found for a specific search query from the top of the search results. Typically when you do a search on Google, Google will show you the “about” number of results Google found that matched that query.

Google is testing removing that on some of their user interface tests. Derek Edmond shared screen shots with me on Twitter showing how it was removed from his view.

Here is how it should look, with the estimate count:

Here is how it looks without it:

Google is constantly testing new interfaces, so it is unclear if Google will decide to remove this in the future. Google has told us that these estimates are just estimates and should not be used for accurate reporting.
