Google has redesigned the way it displays image search results, making them faster and easier for users to see.
Based on feedback from both users and webmasters, the company redesigned Google Images "to provide a better search experience."
In the next few days, you'll see image results displayed in an inline panel "so it?s faster, more beautiful, and more reliable," according Google.
You will be able to quickly flip through a set of images by using the keyboard. If you want to go back to browsing other search results, just scroll down and pick up right where you left off.
For webmaster, Google will now display detailed information about the image (the metadata) right underneath the image in the search results, instead of redirecting users to a separate landing page.
Some key information are featured much more prominently next to the image: the title of the page hosting the image, the domain name it comes from, and the image size.
The domain name is now clickable, and Google also added a new button to visit the page the image is hosted on.
In addition, the source page will no longer load up in an iframe in the background of the image detail view. This speeds up the experience for users, reduces the load on the source website's servers, and improves the accuracy of webmaster metrics such as pageviews.
