Over the previous couple of days I’m seeing extra stories of individuals seeing Google a number of show product picture thumbnails all through the cellular search outcomes snippets. Not just some however in extra. Sure, Google does present product picture thumbnails within the snippets, they’ve been for years, however it looks as if Google could also be dialing it as much as present extra.
Mordy Oberstein shared a photograph of this on Twitter every week or so in the past:
Final evening, Martin MacDonald shared a display screen recording of this which exhibits what number of watch product photos he noticed for a question:

RankRanger, I imagine, does track these occurrences and it appears there’s a spike in how usually Google is exhibiting these picture thumbnails within the search outcome snippets (though, RankRanger could also be monitoring these within the desktop outcomes?):
Martin stated on Twitter “it is solely triggered on the singular “watch,” not “watches” and different manufacturers, ie Omega, TAG, Rolex even have them, however just one or two on the primary web page, not many of the outcomes.”
In any occasion, do not be shocked in the event you see much more photos within the snippets, espesially for e-commerce associated searches.
