Google announced that it made a change to Google Search, change that will help you easily access more information about websites.

When you search for something, like “Civil War battlefields” for example, you will get search results that are relevant for your query. Search results from various websites are displayed by Google. That part isn’t new. What’s new is that Google lets you easily see where the search results come from – with a simple mouse click you can view info on the websites you see in the search results.

Say you want to find out more about the American Civil War and you want to get info on Civil War battlefields in particular. A simple way to do so would be to use Google. Thanks to Google you can easily find websites that host relevant information about your topic of interest.

As I’m sure you already know, when you search on Google for “Civil War battlefields”, you will be presented with a list of results – webpages from various websites that host info about your query. But before you click a link, you may want to find out more about the website you’re going to visit. And this is where I tell you about the change Google recently implemented.

Google introduced info cards for websites. If you want to learn more about a website before opening a link in the search results, just click on the name next to the link. Here’s an image to better put things in perspective.



“You’ll see this extra information when a site is widely recognized as notable online, when there is enough information to show or when the content may be handy for you,” explained Bart Niechwiej, Software Engineer with Google. “The information you’ll see is based on the Knowledge Graph, Google’s interconnected understanding of the things that exist in the world. As we expand the Knowledge Graph, we expect to give you more information about more websites - making it easier for you to choose the right result.”
