Google announced it’s gone realtime, meaning essetially that if they think it’s worth you knowing what was said 10 minutes ago about what you’re interested in, they’ll share that with you!
“If high quality information is coming in, then we will show it,” said Amit Singhal, a Google fellow who heads Google’s ranking systems and oversaw the development of the new real time system.
Some of the information comes to you live from :
Tweets from Twitter
Content from Google News
Content from Google Blog Search
Newly created web pages
Freshly updated web pages
FriendFeed updateearch system
Content from Facebook and MySpace is promised
How the information ranked? Singhal said only information deemed highly relevant is included. So spammy tweets, low quality pages and other content might not make it into the real time search “layer” that is used. After that, results are ranked by time.
In the end, it’s going to make all of your social media concerns, more applicable in the SEO world. Become an authority organically, maintain quality content in the socail sector, and enjoy top of the hill rankings all around.
