Google tests show images in search results


This afternoon I read on Search Engine Land that Google "are running a user interface in the search results to show images within the web search snippets".

Here's how you can enable the experiment:

  • Go to Google.com and load your browser's developer console:
    • Google Chrome: Tools, Developer Tools
    • Mozilla Firefox: Web Developer, Web Console
    • Internet Explorer: Developer Tools (F12), Console
  • Copy and paste the following code:
    document.cookie="NID=67=r3LuPyb6CdslkiuZJflw1UVEcLoyrOmjcfySZj28_QGYjNjv6orEd8FLqn9QrhZ0ICPO3Ie7NjbTWNScwVOIaMhyDTaM6wazUMT-MWr6W6J34z1uGLeQOFuxbw8UEbYO; path=/; domain=.google.com";window.location.reload();
  • Press Enter and you'll see the experiment.

If doesn't work, try this other method:

  • Open Chrome and install this extension.
  • Go to Google.com and select "Edit Cookies" option on the context menu:
  • Find a cookie named NID and replace the value with this cookie value:
    67=r3LuPyb6CdslkiuZJflw1UVEcLoyrOmjcfySZj28_QGYjNjv6orEd8FLqn9QrhZ0ICPO3Ie7NjbTWNScwVOIaMhyDTaM6wazUMT-MWr6W6J34z1uGLeQOFuxbw8UEbYO
  • Click "Submit cookie changes" and refresh the page.
