Google Showing Just 3 Organic Results

Well, there I was doing a search for “Barcelona airport car hire” for a trip that I’m arranging and I was quite surprised to discover that the results showed just three results!  I’m used to Google showing just six or seven results but never three.   It looks like, if anything, they are introducing even more local listings.

This search was on and when I did the same search on there were 9 results.

Here’s a screenshot of my “3 results” SERPS:

Well, it looks like getting a top three result may one day become more important than ever.

Have you ever seen 3 results yourself?  Leave a comment and let me know.
