Google Testing Website Previews in Search Results
Lately Google has been doing test after test and they’ve just come with a big change today, showing website previews in the search results.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to try it out, because it doesn’t appear to me, whatever I tried doing.
It seems like there is a preview button and I hope that the previews are not triggered by a simple mouse-over, because it would be very disturbing. I think this feature might help users to see if what they are searching for is there or not, and it might also decrease the CTR of spam sites that don’t offer quality content.
Currently we can’t know if they are going to implement it world wide or just forget about it, though they are testing it right now, so they do have something in mind.
Take a look at the screenshots below to see what I’m talking about.
