My Google Now cards have started to show images that don't relate to the subject!

See screenshot below:

A Google Messenger app card shows Chips & a card about Football shows a picture of a female!

Has anyone any suggestions or fixes?

Thanks in Advance.

Google Now takes these articles from sites and topics you've visited in the past. However, the snapshot it takes it's from trying to parse the title, some content, and images from it. If the site has images from comments linked to Facebook, static ads, links, etc., it might be pulling that into your card. It is still from the same site, just not exactly related to the article itself.

Thanks for the reply, the card subjects are correct and I understand what you said, just never seen this before on Google Now ( having used it since it started!)

I've seen it happen a couple of times, and have seen it even more when adding pins to Pinterest. Those static ads and sidebars really screw up the preview images.
