Starting this week Google is making it easier to quickly find great images right in your search results,” announced Google.
“Images will now appear in a tiled layout, with hover previews that give you a larger thumbnail and more information about a particular image,” Google said.
“Additionally, if we detect that your query has “high image intent” (meaning, you’re looking for images) we’ll start showing more images on the page. If you add words like “photos”, “pictures”, and “images” to a query, that means you’re probably not looking for a blog post or video,” explains Google.
“Showing more images on the main search results page makes it just that much faster to find the image you’re looking for. For e.g., in a search for [sunsets], instead of just three or four pictures at the top of the results, now you’ll find more than a dozen beautiful pictures filling up most of the page.”
This is currently available on google.com in English and will be available globally over the next month.
