Google search results page displays answer without any search results


Google is now showing answers without any additional search results for some queries. For example, if you search for [time in los angeles] or [time in new zealand] Google will show the answer, and then show a button below the answer to load the search results.

Here is a screen shot:

I have tried to replicate this for other answer box related queries such as [how old is obama], [who is the president], [rangers game score], [when is sunset] and other queries but was unable to trigger this for anything outside of “what time is it…” related queries.

As you can see, Google has added a button for “show all results” to load the results after.

We have emailed Google for a statement and will update this story when we hear back.

Hat tip to @AnalyticsNinja for spotting this first.
