Google page preview

Posted by Michael Bloch in online world (Wednesday November 4, 2009 )

An interesting new feature from Google is called “page preview”

As you may have guessed, it provides a thumbnail shot of a web site next to the relevant listing. The accompanying snippet is quite a bit longer too:

Here’s a sample search so you can see it in action.

The feature is accessed from within the search results by clicking on the “Show options” on the left hand side just above the search results. The option is listed at the bottom of the left hand menu that appears and once enabled, will stay active for that search session.

I rarely look at the “more options” feature and noticed some interesting switches to remove some shopping sites from results or add more in. There’s also the ability to see results from a certain time period and a thing called Wonder Wheel where related queries are represented graphically – and you can continue drilling down.

This earth-shattering information and 3 bucks will get you a cup of mediocre coffee I guess :)
