Google Integrates Google Plus in Search

January 11th, 2012 at 10:27 am

Google is not stopping in letting your know it has a social networking venture called Google+. It had TV ads, integrated G Plus in Google’s many services, even provided an automatic account for G+ for anyone using Gmail. Now, Google has integrated Google+ to its core product: the search engine.

Google has updated its search engine, which they call “Search Plus Your World,” to include what you and your friends have shared on Google+. Type a keyword, say “Occupy Wall Street,” and its search result would also yield which links have been +1’d or shared by your circles in Google+. This search update also affects your image search, as Google will also pull in some photos shared on Picasa and G Plus. However, if these photos are marked private, or shared in a limited number of people, the images will only be visible to them.

This update on Google search engine only affects users of Google+, but analysts in some tech blogs have been claiming that it is foreshadowing a bigger thing to come, with Google becoming a “universal search engine.”
