Google is Becoming More Visual on Mobile
On Sep 15, Google announced through Google+ that it has introduced ‘new, more visual mobile search results at your service.’ Look at the screenshot below.
For any given search query, the results appear as thumbnails on the right of the search results page on the mobile screen. Google has been testing this feature for some time; we have often seen that more than half of the search results on mobile have thumbnails.
This means that websites should ensure they have good thumbnails that Google can display for different queries related to their products and services. This is an important to-do action item from SEO perspective. From all such innovations, we see that Google is tending towards a more visual search results page.
