Google Inclusive Schema For Image Search Monk Skin Tone Scale Coming Soon

One of the announcements at Google I/O was a new way to filter image results by skin tones. Part of that announcement, that I embedded in my coverage, was Google saying content creators will be able to use “inclusive schema to label their content with attributes like skin tone, hair color and hair texture.”

Google wrote “Creating a more representative Search experience isn’t something we can do alone, though. How content is labeled online is a key factor in how our systems surface relevant results. In the coming months, we’ll also be developing a standardized way to label web content. Creators, brands and publishers will be able to use this new inclusive schema to label their content with attributes like skin tone, hair color and hair texture. This will make it possible for content creators or online businesses to label their imagery in a way that search engines and other platforms can easily understand.”

But this feature is not live yet, it is coming in the “coming months.”

John Mueller of Google was asked about the status of this on Twitter and he said “It’s still early days there, as far as I know there are no public specifics yet.”

Here are those tweets:

So when is it coming? I suspect we will hear something soon, maybe in June or July?

Do you know how you, as a content creator/publisher, would benefit from using this?

Google Shopping Search Discover Filter For Black, Women, Veteran & Latino Owned Businesses

Google Shopping Search Discover Filter For Black, Women, Veteran & Latino Owned Businesses

Google has recently added a new “Discover” filter to the Google Shopping search side bar to filter shopping results by Black-owned, Latino-owned, Veteran-owned or Women-owned businesses. I think this was added at least a few months ago when Google added the smaller stores filter but I am not 100% sure on timing.

For some searches, you will see this filter on the left side, under the title “Discover.” It lists Black-owned, Latino-owned, Veteran-owned or Women-owned businesses as possible selections – click on the image to enlarge:

Google has documented this in its help documents but that document was updated sometime between July 2021 and April 2022 to add this Discover feature in the content. So I do think this was added after Google added the black owned label to Google Shopping but probably around the same time Google added the smaller stores filter in March 2022?

Hat tip to Shameem Adhikarath who notified me of this on Twitter:
