Google is Removing All Right Hand Side Ads on SERPs Worldwide

While Google has yet to make an official statement, numerous sources have confirmed that Google is currently rolling out a redesign of their search engine results pages across all listings, globally.  Historically, Google results have supported up to 10 ads, with up to 3 appearing at the top of the page and 7 more in the right sidebar.  Google has been experimenting with this layout with various tests, and is now pushing a new version with a maximum of 7 ads, with 3-4 ads appearing at the top and 3 ads appearing at the bottom.
