Google image search in the US (append the parameter “&gl=us” to result URLs if you’re not in the US) now offers an “Also try: …” feature on top of results. For instance, entering cologne suggests “cologne bottle”. Another example: ibm results in “ibm logo”. (German results in “german flag” – Finnish in “finnish girl”.) In the screenshot right, a search for [army] returned Google’s suggestion to “also try: [us army]”.
The feature is already available at Yahoo Image Search, where you’ll also find a box of recommended searches at the bottom of the page: “others who searched for … also searched for”. Live Search shows a list of related people when you search for a famous person, like Natalie Portman.
The top queries in an image search engine are usually celebrity names. What other things do you try to find using these specialized search engines and what improvements would you like to see in the future?
