Google today added a new tool to image search that should help clarify what type of content is available within the individual search results. Moving forward, people will begin to see small badges in the bottom left corner of image results that indicate what's behind the image. For example, an image search for "cupcakes" may include pictures, recipes, videos, and more. The badges will call out the image category, providing some clarity on what will happen if you tap the image. Tapping a photo marked "recipe" will open a search result with cupcake recipes, and so on. Google says some image search results may be marked as videos, products, or as GIFs. The new badge tool is being made available to Google image search on Android and the mobile web.
