Have you seen the new changes being made over at Google Images? If not, you should check it out. It’s actually pretty cool and more advanced than their previous setup. Google Images can be used for a lot of things… just to browser photos, look for relevant images for blog posts and many are using these images for ad campaigns like Facebook and more.
Improvements to the system include being able to view more images at one time, instead of having to continually click for the next page at the bottom of the results. Now Google Images displays 16 pages of content before having to click “more results”. You also have the option to scroll over the image to enlarge, or see what site is hosting the image.
Another change to Google Images that might not make a lot of marketers and web site owners happy, is when you click the image, you will be sent to the web site which the image is hosted on, but you will first see the site faded out and the image first. I would say this might not make web site owners that get a lot of traffic from Google Images unhappy because it’s another process to getting visitors to actually view your site. You can see this in the screen shot below.
As a user, I love the changes made to Google Images. The changes implemented have made it a lot easier to look through hundreds of images a lot faster, and when browsing a site after clicking on the image, you no longer have that annoying framed window on top.
Check out the new Google Images and let me know what you think.
