Google Instant Preview effect on Page Layout

New Google preview feature
Google is joining the fight aside Apple to bury Flash development. Google has always been a strong supporter of HTML versus Flash, giving poor to none SEO value for Flash sites. The release of HTML 5 and the ongoing support to create HTML 6 made clear that the dynamic graphic will soon be supported by most browsers and a separate technology would no longer be necessary.
Google Instant Preview allows a user to obtain a snapshot of the site presented in the organic search results. According to Google this would improve Searcher satisfaction (5% of search most likely to be satisfactory for the chosen site).

5 tips on How to gain advantage from Google Instant Preview

  2. Title Should be visible enought (25px should be enought)
  3. Use a clear font
  4. Include big Visible images
