Video Tour Of Google’s Social Search Interface
This is now in full release on Google. You need to be logged into Google to see it. It’s called SearchWiki. Google reps have said that your personal reordering of listings doesn’t affect the natural search at this time. This is valuable user data though, so I would expect Google to start considering this. Google doesn’t work as hard as they do to collect user data, only to not eventually use it in their products! What better product than Google search? They just need to figure out how to keep it from being artificially manipulated by black-hats and spammers.
A few posts ago I talked about the lucky coworker who got the Google social search beta. Well, today the Google fairies smiled upon me. I created a new Google account for a project I was working on, and a webmaster central account, and BOOM… there it was in all its glory.
I quickly downloaded some screen capture software and put together this video. Sorry, no sound, but I don’t think you’ll really need it to see what this cool Google interface is all about.
