Help Make Google Image Search Better With Label Game

If you ever find yourself bored and eager to help Google or upset with Google Image search results, consider using the Google Image Labeler, which allows ordinary Googlers to label images and help improve the quality of Google Image search results.

If you opt to do it you will be randomly paired with a partner who is online and using the feature at the same time. Over a two-minute period, you and your partner will view the same set of images and be asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. You receive points when your label matches your partner's. The number of points will depend on how specific your label is. It's like a geeky tagging game. To learn how it works,


After time expires, you can explore the images you've seen and the websites where those images were found. The point of it all is to help Google improve the relevance of image search. If you log in to your Google account, they will keep track of your points for you.

Loads of fun but yes, so many images were too small and fuzzy to see what they really were. I wish they would let the standard pic size be larger.

SO addictive. :D I think it's a great idea from Google, because indeed sometimes random things come up in image search.
