[woth reading] Google Adds More Social SEO With +1’d News Articles
Google News now highlights +1’d articles from people in your Google+ circles in its Spotlight section. Friends’ faces and Google+ profiles are displayed next to the link, just like in Google’s social search results. Earlier this month, Google News added the same feature for authors, showing Google+ info under their headlines.
The BIG integration has started. Search is now no longer talking about getting in to bed with social – they are already adjusting the pillows.
Google Plus may not be a Facebook or Twitter but 45 million users is more than enough to provide some kind of indication as to whether or not content is relevant or interesting.
