Google Testing Site Preview

I just noticed that Google is testing a new feature where you get a preview of a website by hovering over their result in the listings.  It’s very interesting to see this especially since it’s covering up the PPC ads on the right.  I suspect that they will change the way this displays because their main money maker is PPC ads.

This is changing by the minute.  After a couple of minutes of first seeing this in my browser, I started to see snippets of text included with the previews:

One thought on “Google Testing Site Preview”

  1. It’s the following day and I’m consistently seeing this in multiple browsers and tabs. It went from just happening occasionally to showing up with every search. Cool. A little annoying though while switching windows clicking back into my browser pops up the preview.
