If you’re like me and you love travel, you’ll be pleased to hear that Google, as of last week, is now including images beside the Map in their search results pages when a search is conducted for a location. Google Maps has been part of Google’s Universal Search results for quite some time and images have also been part of the search results, however, both being displayed together is a new element of the results page. For example, a search for Miami yields the following image:
When clicking on one of the thumbnail images to the right of the map, you will be taken to the photos layer on Google Maps where you can find additional information about those locations, as well as many other photos around the area.
As we can clearly see, Google’s Universal Search Results are continuing to expand the possibilities for searchers, improving their search experience.
