Google Testing "Sources" Area With Info About Movies, Books, People, Music & More (click for full article) "Last November, Google tested a new "Sources" section in its search results, in the third column where ads normally appear.

Experiment Confirmed I noticed these appearing yesterday in my own search results, and Google has confirmed that there's an experiment happening: We're always experimenting with ways to improve search, but we have nothing to announce at this time.
