Seeing that the UK don’t seem to be getting any sunlight this summer I did a few searches for some places which do. While searching for Barcelona on Google Images I noticed a picture of Theirry Henry listed, nothing too strange there expect that the photo was from Monday when he signed for FC Barcelona!
I couldn’t find any further information about an increase in Google Images indexing and as far as I’m aware the last update back was in March. It’s possible there has been a full update within the last 24 hours but if that’s the case I still wouldn’t expect this image to be included, what seems likely is that a limited number of highly regarded news sources are getting images indexed far more frequently. The Shanghai Daily isn’t the only website where this is happening, images from uefa.com and tsn.ca covering the same story are also indexed.
