Revolutionizing Search: Unveiling Google’s Innovative Features – Perspectives, About This Image & AI-Generated Labels

As Seen On


Google has been making waves in the digital marketing world with the recent announcement of three new search features: Perspectives, About This Image, and AI-Generated Image Labels. Unveiled at I/O, these features promise to reshape the search landscape and offer significant benefits and implications for SEO as well as content discovery. This article aims to break down each feature, explaining how they work and exploring their potential impact on search rankings and user experience.


The Perspectives feature is designed to bring a more nuanced and diverse search experience, filtering search results to show videos, blogs, and forums providing a “lived experience” from various points of view. This new feature will be especially beneficial for younger searchers, who may find it more difficult to filter and navigate through the vast amount of available content online.

The user interface presents search results in a visually engaging format, with a clear distinction between content types such as articles, videos, or forum posts. The rollout of Perspectives will take place in the coming weeks, prompting users to test and explore its capabilities.

About This Image

The About This Image feature aims to provide users with detailed information about the origins of images that appear in search results. The feature highlights the history of the image’s indexing, its first appearance, and other appearances on various platforms, enhancing user understanding of the image’s context and origin.

Launched initially in U.S. English search results, the About This Image feature can be accessed by clicking on an image in the search results, revealing the additional information. This feature not only assists users in identifying and appreciating the origins of images but also contributes to a more transparent and informative search experience.

AI-Generated Image Labels

With the growing usage of AI-generated images on the web, Google is introducing new metadata labels that allow site owners to manually label AI-generated images. Unlike conventional images, AI-generated ones do not have a clear source or creator, making it difficult for search algorithms to detect and classify them accurately.

To aid in the identification and categorization of AI-generated images, Google is entrusting image creators with the responsibility of using the new metadata labels. It is worth noting that this markup is only applicable to images, not AI-generated text. The AI-generated image label, as used by Midjourney, is one such example.

The markup is based on the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) standards and bears a similarity to the existing information in Google Images. This new development not only encourages creators to be upfront and transparent about the use of AI-generated images but also enables Google to deliver more accurate search results.

Why These Features Matter

The introduction of these new features could have a significant impact on website traffic and visibility by providing users with more accurate and relevant search results. As such, it is essential for digital marketers, SEO professionals, and website owners to stay updated with Google’s latest search features and integrate them into their content strategies.

The launch of these features may require website owners to reevaluate their content and site optimizations. For instance, utilizing AI-generated image labels can result in more accurate categorization, and being aware of this can enhance a site’s discoverability.


In conclusion, Google’s new search features – Perspectives, About This Image, and AI-Generated Image Labels – offer exciting possibilities for digital marketers, SEO professionals, and website owners. By understanding the functions of each feature, and anticipating their impact on search rankings and user experience, you can be better prepared for their rollout and adjust your online strategies accordingly. Your online presence and strategy must evolve in sync with these updates to make the most of the ever-changing digital landscape.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
