Thumbnails in Search engine results - Fair use
Our search engine contains small low resolution thumbnails (120x90px) of the first image of the article. These images work as a teaser and provide a full working direct link to the resulting page.
These images are small enough (4 times smaller than google search results) and of lesser quality so that the image on itself is not preventing people from visiting the website.
In case you do not agree, feel free to contact us and we can correct. As we are a search engine you can block crawling via standard robots.txt procedures as well. Contacting us is an alternative way to keep your pages out of the results.
