SEO issue with srcset #274

I ran a small test and it seems that, as of now, Google still does not index images through the srcset, despite native support in chrome.

I tested by doing an image search for site: uses picturefill 2 to serve its images, and the image search returns only a single result, of an animated gif, which was served using src.

Just checked our implementation here (using the smallest size in img src attribute - taking the double download hit for bomb proofing) it does look like the URL for the item in src (and 1x srcset) is what is indexed in this case (that JPG url did not appear pre-pciture implementation):

[in the end, a data point that it isn't indexing a larger / differently targeted image from source / srcset]

As far as I can tell, this is more of a complaint regarding Google's spidering engine, or early picture element usage, than a picturefill bug, so I'm going to close it out. thanks!
