If you are using Google Custom Search Engine on your web site /blog(s), and providing thumbnails in "rich snippets" to improve the presentation and usability of the search results pages.

Google CSE team just announced a layout improvement, that will let "Custom Search Element users who have not manually added thumbnails will get them without any additional work," revealed Edison Nica, Software Engineer.

Edison stated, "Now, Custom Search crawls your site to find representative images and automatically adds them to your search results snippets."

He notes, "Automatic thumbnails are only available with the Custom Search Element. If you are using an iframe CSE, switch to the Element to ensure that you always have the most up-to-date features."

You can learn more about automatic thumbnails and how to disable them, in this Help Center article.
