Google does it again! "Latest Search Results" is a GameChanger.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Hub Media Company

Did you catch what happened yesterday with our dear friend Google? Yesterday while most of us mere mortals were sleeping, Google introduced their new "latest search results".  A few months ago I sent you a blog post called Soooo you dont use Twitter? Awesome! Atleast for your competion where I outlined some of the fantastic features about Twitter.  It was anounced shortly before I wrote the post that search engines such as Google and Bing were going to start indexing Tweets making them searchable. Taking a que from Twitter Search (I think) Google has added its latest results search. The search below is for Copenhagen where the climate summit is occuring.

 

 

Hidden within the search results you will note "Latest Results for Copenhagen", with a small box.  That little box is the new addition to Google.  Those small messages with @ infront of them are Tweets, and those gorgeous tweets are streaming live in real time into the search.  What does this mean for you?  It means that while there are literally thousands of searches for the $8000 tax credit every hour, if you use Twitter and reference the $8000 tax credit in your Tweet, your Tweet will be shown instantly in that box, if you equip your tweet with a Bit.ly or TinyURL you can effectively drive the person looking for information obout the tax credit anywhere you want to, your website, blog where ever.  If any of this sounds confusing and you are in the Phoenix Metro area, email me for a one-on-one appt and I will demonstrate how twitter can help you drive traffic to your website and/or blog.  Happy Tweets! @MyTitleGuy,

This is good, especially for us who automatically tweet our posts here in the Rain.

OK, I just did my own test...complete with a Tweet...  Key phrase is "Hemet Real Estate"

The Search Results looked the same with no reference to the Tweet...

Then I clicked on the box at the top that says SHOW OPTIONS and under the first heading ALL RESULTS I chose UPDATES which opened a new screen that had 1 Tweet and one of my recent Blog Posts re-posted elsewhere...now I have got to look into that...

Just thought I'd share my results, because you definitely have me thinking right now and it wold be way cool for the UPDATE results show up on the main search page.

One client called me yesterday and I told him:

"I'm too busy with Twitter, Facebook, Active Rain, SEO for my website, etc. to talk to you. Find an agent who is not so high tech. He'll probably have time for you".

Occhi -  You are correct in being careful with spamming as Google's matrix will pick up on it and work against the spammer.  This is all basic SEO stuff.  Nothing changes except your ability to tweet instantaneously and cross into someone's search.. The key is still fresh and good content.

Katie- If you haven't heard Stephen and I are known as the dynamic duo.  We would be glad to share with you some valuable and powerful advice and tips. 

David Krush- I will be the first to say that 99% of title officers don't know anything about marketing (other than postcards and flyers) let alone social media, web 2.0, SEO marketing..  Most people I speak to and try to teach this stuff to, just don't get it.  Obviously you do as I often see you online and in AR.   I would be the first one to endorse Stephen.  He is awesome!  You owe it to yourself to give him an hour of your time.

Stephen, I was right there with you yesterday on this.  It's pretty amazing and good for those with online presence for Google juice...  Google is just driving home search forms online.  Pretty cool when you think about it...

I would think this would constantly update so the next tweet that had the same topic would replace the existing tweet?  I wonder how long a tweet lives in the Google results

Stephen,

 

Great post!  We are only just beginning to see the possibilities and another reason to be connected in the social media world.

Love it.  Thank you for sharing because I really have not been motivated to get on another social site but this makes me think twice about tweeting

Very interesting! Social Media is viral even in the world of google. Realtime information is what the consumer is looking for. They want to know what the scoop is at all times. I am somewhat amazed how long it is taking all of us to catch up with all of this... me included.
