Google Automatically Selecting Background Colors For Search Result Snippet Images

Over the past few months Google has been auto-selecting background colors not just for image search results and not just for shading Google Shopping Ads but also for images added to the search result snippets in Google Search.

Punit spotted this a few months ago and he shared a couple examples on Twitter that shows how Google is taking an image with maybe a light gray background and then replacing it with a green background. He has more examples but here is the bigger one.

On the left is an image of a heel on a dark green background in the Google Search result image snippet:

But if you looked at the web page, that image as on a light gray background:

Here are more examples:

Pretty cool for Google to do this but I do wonder if the publishers won’t like Google changing the image backgrounds like this?

Daily Search Forum Recap: August 10, 2022

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.


FYI, the Google outage that broke Google seems to be fixed. Google Lens data likely won’t be coming to Google Search Console anytime soon. Google looks like it is showing fewer rich result stars for the shopping verticle. Google now says dynamic rendering is a workaround, not a long-term solution, and should probably not be used. Google is testing showing all the search bar options and removing the “more” link. Google’s follow feature help docs now say use descriptive titles for RSS feeds and try to use a single feed.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Search Showing Fewer Review Rich Results In Shopping Vertical

    Google may be showing fewer reviews in the search result snippets, fewer review rich results, specifically when you filter by the shopping vertical. This seemed to happen right when Google released the Google Product Reviews update, there was a five percentage point drop in the number of review snippets for this category.

  • Google Search Console Reporting To Gain Google Lens? Not Yet…

    As Google Lens becomes more and more popular, SEOs are asking, will we be able to see what traffic we get from Google Lens in Google Search Console? The answer is that Google Search Console currently does not support showing Google Lens traffic or data and likely won’t in the foreseeable future.
  • Google: Dynamic Rendering Is A Workaround and Not A Long-Term Solution

    Google has updated its help documentation on dynamic rendering to say “dynamic rendering is a workaround and not a long-term solution for problems with JavaScript-generated content in search engines. “Instead, we recommend that you use server-side rendering, static rendering, or hydration as a solution,” Google added.
  • Google Follow Feature Docs Now Say Use Descriptive Titles For RSS Feed & Use A Single Feed

    Google has made a couple of tweaks to the documentation for the Follow Feature in Google Search. Google added you should use (1) descriptive titles for your RSS feed and (2) a single feed even if you have multiple.
  • Google Search Tests Showing All Of The Menu Bar Options

    Google is testing displaying all of the menu bar options under the Google Search bar. This is instead of showing the “more” button, to see more search options.

  • Handstand By The Google Detroit Logo

    Here is someone who is doing a handstand right by the Google signage that has logos of automakers, this is in the Google Detroit office. I use to post a number of photos of people doing handstands an
