Google Makes it Easier to Visit Web Pages from Image Search Results

An replace to Google Images makes it simpler for customers to go to the unique internet web page that a picture is featured on.

This can be useful to searchers and has the potential to ship extra visitors to publishers.

However, there’s a catch. In order for pages to profit from this replace, they want to be coded in AMP HTML. That’s as a result of the function depends on AMP to load an prompt preview of an online web page.

The function is named “Swipe to Visit” and was previewed at Google I/O earlier this yr.

When choosing a picture in Google Images’ cellular search outcomes, a preview of the net web page header will seem on the backside of the display (offered it’s an AMP web page).

Users can swipe up on the net web page header to immediately load the web page in full. When customers are completed viewing the net web page, they’ll merely swipe down to proceed their picture search.

Here’s an instance:

In an announcement, Google explains how it works:

“Swipe to Visit uses AMP’s prerender capability to show a preview of the page displayed at the bottom of the screen. When a user swipes up on the preview, the web page is displayed instantly and the publisher receives a pageview.”

Google says the pace and comfort provided by Swipe to Visit makes it extra possible for customers to go to a writer’s website.

If your website already helps AMP, there’s nothing extra you want to do to optimize your pages for Swipe to Visit.

Traffic information from AMP in Google Images can be obtainable in Search Console within the coming weeks.
