Hi guys, hi Zeus,
the last days I observed major changes in Google image search. On the one hand the layout changes. The side-navigation moves up - and the images are shown in the full width. I measured that Google now could show about 45% more images.
Today the "number of results" has passed.
On the other hand many results have changes their position. A lot of new results appears - and other passed. It is the biggest change of results since months. But until now I have no idea why. Perhaps (!) it's a change on the weight of semantic page content. Seems a little bit as onpicture factors like filename or ALT-text is not as important than before. But, agian, these are my first thoughts...
Could anybody confirm? Or is it just a change in germany?
best wishes, Martin
