Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Today we’re bringing a richer hashtag experience to Google Search. Here’s how it works:
- When you search on Google for a hashtag, say [#AmericasCup] or [#WaterfallWednesday], a set of relevant Google+ posts may appear to the right of regular results.
- You’ll only be able to see posts that have been shared publicly or shared with you.
- If you click on any of these posts you'll go to Google+, where you'll see the full set of relevant posts.
- You'll also see links to search for these hashtags on other social sites.
Today's update will be available (initially) to English language users on google.com and google.ca.Google Adding Hashtag To Search [plus.google.com]
Search #google on
Twitter - Facebook
This is for Google+ only, so don't expect twitter and facebook in there.
In practical terms, does this translate as:
the element # was formerly treated as a meaningless punctuation mark in searches, and now it's treated as something with semantic meaning
