Blog Post Thumbnails in Search Results

Posted on August 31st, 2010 by

Good news for Gustavus bloggers, we have taken another step toward making our search engine work a little bit better–blog post thumbnails will now appear next to search results just like profile photos.

If you have a blog at Gustavus, the thumbnail that is used for each post is the one marked as the featured image for the post. If you don’t have an image marked as the featured image, it will fall back to the first one in the gallery for that post. This is the same way the thumbnail works for your blog’s main page–if you want to choose a different image, just select a new featured image.

Images next so search results are beginning to trickle in. If you don’t see yours yet, please be patient as Google indexes our pages.

Bummed that you don’t have any good images for your posts? This guide might help you find a free image to use.
