I've noticed that some Google search results are showing a small picture to the left of the results. Does anyone know how that is done?

Are you referring to a typical google search? Without further information all I can think of is that the google search you are referring to are showing websites that are part of 'google places'... Sorry if I'm incorrect. If you could explain in further detail, perhaps the exact search phrase you are typing into google.

Thanks for responding, Kwik. Type cake recipes into Google search, and you will see one.

Been mentioned before here ..recipes are handled differently by G
if recipes show in general serps and you want yours with a photo..
recipe specific searches category uses this method ..

If it's the news result from the BBC, then that's because it's News. Google often automatically selects images from news sources...

Leosghost nailed it. Google introduced special microdata, RDFa, and microformats (hRecipe) properties you can add to your mark-up. Read more about it here [google.com].
There is a special "photo" property that makes the difference.

Thank you SO much. I was not able to figure it out.

In news search the images come at right hand side but Azlinda saying the image is on left side. I didn't see any difference in recipe category search, its shows as normal result as any other search does.
