Can Google See You?

Old postcards and a magnifying glass.

Have you noticed Google’s new instant preview function?  When you search, a little magnifying glass pops up next to the results.

Click on it and you can get an instant preview of what the site looks like.

Pretty cool!

There’s a catch

If you’ve got a pop-up subscription box or a Flash intro (see I told you not to use them), all that may show is a big black hole — uh oh.

If you’ve got Flash, you may want to rethink it.  If you’re using the pop-up, set it to a longer delay so that Google can see it.

Oh, and if you’re in the US, Happy Thanksgiving.  If not, happy rest of the week and I’ll see you on Monday.
