    How do you do this????

    Come on guys share it if you have knowledge of it. this stick out under my nose and recently just notices it. WTF!!!! :rain::rain::rain::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    This will increase your Click through I can almost guarantee you like the image beside an ads thingy....

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=sun+broadband+wireless+review&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

    Anything investigative to say for this matter will do. If I know how to crack this it wont matter if I get number 5-8 listings in the SERPS:eek:

    I searched it for my self and I looked at the html doesn't look like there is anything special there:

    Code:
    <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-202" title="sun1" src="http://aloofkid.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/sun1.jpg?w=468&h=54" alt="sun1" width="468" height="54" /></p>
    
    What I was interested in was how google overlayed that arrow? Perhaps they think it is a video? So I searched video next to serps and found this page:

    Code:
    http://www.reelseo.com/video-thumbnail-bug/
    That then led me to this:

    Code:
    http://searchengineland.com/blogger-image-thumbnails-in-google-a-bug-15959
    So its only a temporary thing at the moment a bug...

    I have to say though it would be great if we could work out how it was done and see if we can still get it to work after the fix.

    One thing I noticed is the url of the image does a redirect from w3.g00gle.c0m

    I haven't found anything new, and since matt cutts said google are working on it I doubt it would be worth pusuing, what I did find interesting was the idea of maybe fooling google into spidering a video which wasn't there, by changing what appears when google spiders the page. I haven't looked much into this, but it looks possible...
