Google has finally decided to update the image used when you search Edmonton!
In a Google search of any city, a prominent picture sits next to a map and a Wikipedia description. typically the display picture showed a cities finest features, usually a beautiful skyline shot but not Edmonton! For years when you searched Edmonton on Google you got a picture of two defunct industrial buildings topped with 10 smokestacks over the North Saskatchewan River.
Thanks to a social media campaign urging Google to update the image, we now officially have a beautiful new shot featuring The skyline, the river valley and a beautiful Alberta sunset!
