Bing is testing a new design and user interface for its local pack. Google is testing new search filter buttons for shopping queries. Google AdSense launched AdSense shopping links. Google spoke more about 301 redirects and why we should not care how much weight pass with those links. Google Search is testing a new explore section in the search results.
