Google Announces Indexing Twitter Search ResultsYesterday, The Google Blog announced that they will be indexing Twitter Tweets in their search engine results. This is new and exciting information for Twitter users across the Globe. Your tweets will now get SEO and be found by those searching for up to the minute, real-time information on topics and subjects that you’re micro-blogging about. It’s time to take a look at how you are using Twitter to maximize Google’s new search engine feature.
“Given this new type of information and its value to search, we are very excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Twitter to include their updates in our search results. We believe that our search results and user experience will greatly benefit from the inclusion of this up-to-the-minute data, and we look forward to having a product that showcases how tweets can make search better in the coming months. That way, the next time you search for something that can be aided by a real-time observation, say, snow conditions at your favorite ski resort, you’ll find tweets from other users who are there and sharing the latest and greatest information.” Google Blog: Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Search Products and User Experience
As Google continues to evolve with these types of features and services, businesses and individuals must continue to evolve along with them. Youtube videos are being indexed, Flickr photos are being indexed, and now with Twitter added to the list, you can be certain that utilizing these sites and tools can and will benefit your online Social exposure, your shared information and resources, and of course your business.
