How to display pictures in the mobile SERP 1 Recommended Answer 7 Replies 1 Upvote

I found that some webpages will display images on the mobile side(pic 1), and it doesn't seem to be implemented through structured data, because I didn't find the photo through the detection tool. Instead, I found this photo in the [og:image] tag(pic 2), so I guess it was caused by it. I did this on my own webpage, but it didn't work(pic 3).

My question
1. Is the mobile SERP display photo affected by the [og:image] tag?
2. If yes, why can't my webpage display a SERP with images?

Thank you to everyone who came to discuss this issue!

yep, you answered you own question. 
 
In particular you can't guarantee that Google will use any image offered.  It doesnt always use og:image either, sometimes it will pick an image from the page, typically a large, 'banner' or 'headline' image

Hey,

Were you able to really narrow down the reason, as to why Google was picking up og image, not the actual image.

You probably cant. Googl generally wants a specific image for the article, not just a logo. 
 
The exeception is the small favicon,

(but thats different to the larger 'article' image)

Hi, this thing is the same to me, why is it taking Google Reviewer's pictures on SERP? My website, https://www.albacars.ae/ appears when I search for "used cars Dubai", but with the Google Reviewer's image, I need to change it to my own, is there a way?
