Google Images Search is now redesigned to provide a better search experience. In the next few days, Google will be rolling out an update enabling you to see image results displayed in an "inline panel."

"You will be able to quickly flip through a set of images by using the keyboard. If you want to go back to browsing other search results, just scroll down and pick up right where you left off," informs Google.

The update will make Image search more faster, beautiful, and reliable. Also, webmaster looking for the images and their metadata can now do so.

And, as usual, the image search query data is also available in Top Search Queries in Webmaster Tools. Here's what this update is offering to webmasters:

  • "Updated Image search now display detailed information about the images metadata right underneath the image in the search results, "instead of redirecting users to a separate landing page" as previously.
  • Key information such "the title of the page hosting the image, the domain name it comes from, and the image size" will now prominently display next to the image.
  • Domain name is now clickable, and also you can visit the page the image is hosted on with just a click on the new added button.
  • Source page will no longer load up in an iframe in the background of the image detail view--"speeding up the experience for users, reduces the load on the source website's servers, and improves the accuracy of webmaster metrics such as pageviews"," google explains.
