Google now embeds information about games in search results

Google now embeds information about games in search results

October 23, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




As of yesterday, Google has expanded its Knowledge Graph program to cover games. When you search for a game's title on Google, many times you'll now get a helpful box that tells you more about the title alongside or on top of your search results (depending on your platform.)

The box pulls info from sites such as Metacritic, Steam, and Wikipedia, and images from Google Image Search, to offer a quick overview of the title.

Not all games are supported, however. A few quick searches reveals that while a major title might have a big box, smaller indie games have proportionally smaller boxes and some games, like 3DS downloadable title Azure Striker Gunvolt, from the developers of Mighty No. 9 and Mega Man ZX, have no Knowledge Graph result at all.

Of note to developers: A small "Feedback" link under the Knowledge Graph result allows you the chance to correct errors.
