And Just like that …
Search Goes Social High-Quality Search results are just the beginning. Now only Bing brings together best search with people from your social networks, so you can spend less time searching and more time doing.
Now I am very excited by this new move from Bing, it comes right after Google kind of screwed up its search engine results with all these crazy updates namely Panda and Penguin.
Now don’t get me wrong Google is still King of search but it is very nice to have choices and prior to this there was none.
So what is this Search Goes Social and what does it all ? It basically means instead of just search the old fashion way where you had rankings based on backlinks and other SEO tactics you now have social signals showing up in the serps.
To Google social search means Google plus One Your World to Bing social search means you search and you can get ask your Facebook and Twitter friends for help. So instead of getting some fake review from someone you don’t know or trust you now with Bing new look and functionality you can have the help of your friends.
Now here is what I can’t wait to see what is Google next move or do Google ever need to move. Google has 80% of the search market although I love Google+ most of my friends who are not tech, geeks or marketers are not there.
This could be something big for Bing and Facebook. The only real drawback is Google not only have search but Google has mail, Google has video, Google has a hell of a lot.
We will see how this turn out … until then …. Let the Serp Games Begin!!!!!
