Frequently Asked Question #98
Can I display a product image / thumbnail for matching documents within my search results?
Yes, you can do so by inserting a collection of custom FusionBot META tags within each page on your site for which you would like a thumbnail image to appear.

This feature is available for Silver & Gold customers exclusively, as it requires the ability to modify your custom search results template in order to include an optional Template Object Tag in the position within your results template where the thumbnail image should appear.

To associate a thumbnail image with a specific page on your site, add the following separate META tag(s) to the HEAD section of each page:


<meta name="fb_thumbnail_image" content="">

This tag points to the location of the thumbnail that you wish to appear as part of the search results for the corresponding page.


<meta name="fb_thumbnail_width" content="X">

This tag enables you to provide a specific value (X) that should be assigned to the value of the 'width' attribute of the thumbnails <img> tag.

<meta name="fb_thumbnail_height" content="Y">

This tag enables you to provide a specific value (Y) that should be assigned to the value of the 'height' attribute of the thumbnails <img> tag.

<meta name="fb_thumbnail_href" content="">

Use this tag if you want the click-through link for the thumbnail image to link to a URL different than the actual page in which the thumbnail has been inserted.

<meta name="fb_thumbnail_target" content="_TARGET">

Use this tag if you want the target window, when clicking on the thumbnail, to be different than the default target window when clicking a text link within the search results.

Whenever adding or modifying your thumbnail META tags within your pages, you must request a recrawl of your site for these changes to appear within your search results.

Finally, once your site has been recrawled with the above referenced META tag(s) are in place, in order for the thumbnail images to appear within your search results, you must modify your search results template to include the Template Object Tag: $RES_THUMBNAIL, by placing this object tag in the precise location within your template HTML where you wish for the thumbnail image to appear.

The $RES_THUMBNAIL object tag, by virtue of its name, MUST be placed somewhere between the $RES_START and $RES_END Template Object Tags in order to be valid. For a more thorough understanding of how the FusionBot Template process functions, please reference our Template Documentation.
