Were you one of the ones that hated the taste of New Coke?

Did you threaten to start drinking Pepsi, unless Coca-Cola switched back to the original recipe?

Well, if you feel the same way about your search results, there’s hope! Nope, you don’t need to threaten to switch to Bing, it’s far easier.

All you need do is click this link. It will add “webhp?hl=all” to your Google URL and switch you to the old version. It appears to be a permanent switch to–Google drops a cookie to keep you on that UI.

If you need to change back, then this link appears to do the trick.

Now you can enjoy Google Classic. ­čśë

    Google Classic….is that with real sugar or high fructose corn syrup? The MP readers need to know.

    Google does not know what they want to do. They change their interface about twice a week. I think that they should leave it alone because most people don’t like change

    We live in an Internet Marketing World where everyone is trying to figure out Google and Google is trying to figure out how everyone thinks!

    I always thought “Simplicity” was the answer……I guess we are not there yet….

    Thanks for the Post…..

    It’s not just the look – I get some different results when I experiment between the two. Total result counts, sites that show up in the SERP… I haven’t done a major test here, only a handful of queries. But WTF is up with that?
