Search Google Visually

Today I came across an online tool that allows you to see the screenshot of pages in the google search result. You can give it a try at “Veesual.com

Veesual

Veesual Result

While I found the concept to be interesting, I was wondering what could be the use of looking at screenshots of pages in search result. What matters to me is getting a list of relevant search results. A thumbnail of a particular page in search result won’t help me in determining how relevant that page is to my search.

However, I do see one use for getting search results along with thumbnails. It can be used to come up with ideas for designing web-sites for a particular theme. You can search on Veesual using a keyword that describes the theme of your site and then take a quick look at the design of pages in the result. This can help you to come up with your own web-page design.

Do let me know if you can think of some more applications of Veesual.com

    Hi Anay,
    I think you are getting it all wrong here. They say a single picture is worth thousand words. Instead of showing the user a list of links (with ofcourse a small summary) and letting the user spend most of his/her time in finding the best possible info page, it is better to let him have a ‘sneak-peak’ of whats in store for him. This concept is becoming very popular especially since Google started using it in their Google FastFlip. Give it a try and I am sure you will enjoy the experience.
