Google‘s mobile image search service, Google Image, arrives with the latest feature. It called “Swipe to Visit”.
As the name suggests, now the users can directly visit the related image source sites (which has been searched via Google Images) on the mobile, with just one swipe.
So, the users do not need to click on a link to the site that includes the image or opens a new tab in the browser.
Later, when a user searches for the images through Google Images and selects one of them, a header will appear containing the name and preview of the source site at the bottom of the image search details.
Well, this site preview can be directly called to appear full by sweeping toward the top of it. And it should be noted, when the search results are displayed, the user must first click on the image where the article is opened, as shown in the first illustration below.
If you have finished visiting the site, the users can return to the image search by swiping down at the top of this article window towards the bottom. Site pages displayed in the preview header are those that have been created according to the standard Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) made by Google.
Site managers who already use the AMP platform do not need to make additional settings so that the preview of the page is displayed in Google Images search.
Google claims the ‘Swipe to Visit’ mechanism is easier and faster than before. So, it is more inciting the users to visit the source image site.
“When a user sweeps up, the site page is quickly displayed and the owner gets a page view,” Google wrote in their blog post.
