Back in May, Google and Twitter partnered to bring tweets into mobile search results. It was, and is, a pretty big deal for both companies.
The relationship is apparently going well, as Google announced in a short update on its original blog post that it’d be including tweets within search results on desktop as well:
Update, 8/21/2015: We’ve extended this to desktop now too, and in English everywhere.
Google’s looking to make it easier for businesses to manage their Google listings, with a new option to manage how your company appears in Google search direct from the search results themselves.
As you can see here, new options have been added which enable you to edit your info, add photos and create mini-posts (more on those here) all direct from the search listing.
For Google in Europe, it's time to forget. The search giant began removing search results on Thursday, following the controversial "Right to be Forgotten" ruling last month.
When searching for names using a localized search engine like Google.es or Google.co.uk, the company displays a notice at the end of the page, saying that some search results "may have been removed."
Google doesn't indicate which individual links have been removed. And the notice is displayed for most names — not just those who have actually made a request "to be forgotten."
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the company's intention to enter the search advertising world. Facebook is focused on making search more relevant for businesses before introducing ads, with Messenger likely to be part of the plans.
Twitter has started testing out new pages to look through tweets and photos from specific locations.
If the new feature has been rolled out to you, you can click on or tap new clickable location links for individual tweets in order to bring up the new search results. Alternatively, you can also get into the new search by clicking the little location icon at the top right of a tweet in your timeline.
