How would you like to search Google for something and get the opinions of people you know and trust right along with the normal search results. With Google you can. This service was first launched back in 2009 but social results were only shown at the bottom of the page. Now they’ll be mixed in with the regular search results.
In order to see posts made by those in your social network you’ll need to make sure you’re logged into Google before starting your search. So if they’re sharing things on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or their own blogs and it’s relative to the search you’re doing , it will come up.
If you’ve been doubting the power of social media marketing, with Google now putting more emphasis on it, all of those postings you’re making on Facebook or Twitter could now help you to be found higher up in their search results. And as Martha Stewart likes to say “That’s a Good Thing”.
