On a regular basis, Google tries out something new on the search result page. But adding some new options for the users is once in a while. As a result, every time when Google does something for the users it is worth paying attention to.
Yesterday, Google has added some new features for US users in its mobile, desktop, and on its Android Google app. The new features allow the users to know more about the domain/website they are likely to open.
How To See More Information About The Domain
Users had to click on the three-dotted icon present on the right-top corner. Once the user clicked it will pop up a new dialog box having more information about the website. This will tell you about the connection is secure or not and a little bit of description about the website.
Following are the new information provided:
- Description of the domain (If the website is not entered in Wikipedia then Google will display the first index and other relevant information if available.)
- Whether the domain is secure
- The full URL of the search result
- Whether the result is organic or an advertisement
Based on Wikipedia’s open editing model, which relies on thousands of global volunteers to add content, these descriptions will provide the most up-to-date verified and sourced information available on Wikipedia about the site.
If it’s a site you haven’t heard of before, that additional information can give you context or peace of mind, especially if you’re looking for something important, like health or financial information.
Google has rolled out this feature as a beta version. Before rolling this out globally, Google wants to see whether it is useful for the users or not. Once the feature is launched globally, the company will make some more changes to it.
