    New Type of Google Local Rich Snippet?? Video Thumbnail?

    I noticed this in some Google search results today. There is a video thumbnail, but it isn't a YouTube or video listing. If you click on it, it takes them to their website (which does have a video on the homepage). It also has the rich snippet ratings and Google Maps pin. Have you seen this before?

    Showed up in "Newport Beach Dentist" search results. It may be that they're just testing this on certain servers. Anybody else seeing this?

    Sheesh, not only did they get the video thumbnail...

    They scored a one-box for the search term: Newport Beach Dentist

    Thanks Linda. It was an organic listing under a keyword search for "Newport Beach Dentist".

    It wasn't in the local search pack.

    re: New Type of Google Local Rich Snippet?? Video Thumbnail?

    At 1st I figured video schema was causing the thumbnail in search.

    Can any brilliant techies in the group figure it out.

    I did some brief digging and ran the website through the Google Structured Data tool and was only able to see that they had Publisher Markup.

    Re: New Type of Google Local Rich Snippet?? Video Thumbnail?

    I noticed that their video is in a crawlable embed format with flash player and not an iframe which isn't indexable.

    Some more info over on Distilled's site

    It's also just grayed out and dull like it's not supposed to be that way.

    Maybe just a fluke with that player?

    (Grins as she watches the stampede to find the player and start using it!)
