Is it just me but when I search elephant in google, it brings three thumbnails and says that "See 251,000 image results for elephant"..

It doesn't work with any other keywords that I tried but elephant....

Do you see this happening in Google's normal web search, or in Google Image search? Can you make a screenshot?

I used Google's normal web search... did you try it yourself?

Yes, I did try, but didn't see. Looks like Google is testing something again and you were lucky to get it.

You are welcome..

By the way, I didn't like this feature at all. I like google's simplicity and its being plain text (of course except logos).

I wouldn't want images popping up on each search.

update: I no longer see the thumbnails... they ended the experiment I guess.

I found this on


yumgo.co.uk/google5.gif



Looks like you may evetually be able to select what ever search you like from this multi vertical search portal. One thing I noticed is that this looks like a planned release not their actaul site.

Looks great.

It appears that the yumgo guys have gone live with it. However I cannoty see the Blinkx and Blinkx tv buttons.

I came across your blog and would like to say a few things about the Blinkx search box on our multi vertical search site yumgo.

We will add a Blinkx.TV search button on yumgo as soon as we get the go ahead from the guys at Blinkx.

In the mean time if there is any other vertical search engine that you believe we should include on www.yumgo.com feel free to drop me of the other guys a line at yumgo[put at-character here]yumgo.co.uk

Cheers,

Tunde
