Hello Friends,

Many of you to-day might have noticed that , Google is celebrating Sir Isaac Newton’s birthday by placing a special logo on the homepage. Well, I was searching more about it & I found some interesting things, well No, M not talking about research on Sir Isaac Newton, I am talking about Google SERP.

Well, when I searched about Sir Isaac Newton on Google, I have noticed that, Google Serp has live feed integration of Twitter & which is constantly updating without hitting the Refresh button. Yes, its really great, that simply means that you get the fresh result with live feed. Finally, Google has implemented the idea of live search feed integration. Following image explains it in a more better way.

Well, If you want to try it yourself, you can search on “Issac Newton” & check out your self this new integration. I am really impressed by this update. This will be a new boost for Twitter marketers as there is one more way of getting in search results using Twitter 🙂

Well, but again, as usual, due to habit, my mind forced me to think about impact of this on SEO efforts (after all that’s my bread & butter :P) , May be spamming on twitter will increase, now, not only followers but number of tweets will also be measured as success criteria on twitter, May be frequent updates for a particular keyword will be more (just like trending topic on twitter) to improve the chances to get listed on Google. This might increase the sell of automatic twitter update softwares available in the market.

BUT, A BIG QUESTION IN MY MIND : What about duplicate content issue ? , How Google will find the duplicate content in live feed ? Are Google crawlers capable enough to catch duplicate content at every microsecond & update the clean live feed without duplicate content ? What about spamming methods used to influence the topic ?

Too many questions but even though I really appreciate this integration of live feed. One thing is clear that ,Twitter has long life in this tough competitive market 🙂

What do you think about this update ? Have you noticed for any other keyword ? I would love to hear from you on this update. 🙂
