Google Adds Captions to Image Search Results
Google today said it is now providing more information in image search results. When people perform searches using Google Images, they'll see new captions that include the title of the web page where the result is published. Google believes this will give the results more context that is easily discerned from the main results page. Google already offers badges that call out image results based on what type they may be, such as products or recipes. Image search results also already include web site domains and URLs so people can see where the image is coming from. Google says image captions are rolling out globally today in the Google Search app for Android and iOS.
