Google Testing New Site Image & Content Summaries in Results

Google seems to be testing a new function in specific search results which features expandable and collapsing site information blurbs.

Dave Winer of first picked up the Blue Wedges next to Google web search results on a search for “Canada.”

Here’s a screen capture courtesy of Michael Nguyen from Social Patterns.

What’s interesting is the UI allows users to search deeper in a site from the original listings. Also looks like the content is a javascript dropdown div – more content and more time spent on Google’s search page. If users can get the content they want without having to leave, that’s a win for Google. Not so great for publishers though.”

    so they are now practically displaying content from websites on their search pages.

    earlier, it was only cache or snippets. this is surely going to bring them more lawsuits.

  • There was a searchengine which did this a few years ago, i think it was dogpile. They used to give the option of opening the webpages from results in an iframe on the results page. Wonde whatever happened to that.
