Google’s Micro blogging Search Engine is going to hit the market Soon

Yes! You have heard it right! Google the king of search engines is soon going to launch its new Micro blogging Search engines for Twitter and other sites. Micro blogging has acquired much significance in this world of Web 2 and it is now a popular way for people to share real-time information with others [or better say whole world]

Twitter no doubt is the most used Micro blogging service these days but one of its drawback is search algorithm. Although previously we have talked about the improvement of twitter search engine but still it sorts the results by date not relevance. There are services like Tweetfind, Twingly which try to sort them but those are not that good. So if now Google is putting its hand onto it we can really expect something big.

According to Googlesystem Blog

“Much like Google Blog Search, Google's micro blogging search service will sort the results by relevancy and it also be integrated with Google's web search engine: the keywords that are frequently used in recent posts will trigger a MicroBlogsearch universal search group.”

Also there has been a Hint on this upcoming Google Service in Google’s Translation console [where Google harvests voluntary human translation services they use to make their product multilingual] which is quoted below:

"Recent updates about QUERY. This is the MicroBlogsearch Universal result group header text. A Micro blog is a blog with very short entries. Twitter is the popular service associated with this format."

While discussing the significance of Twitter for Google, Marissa Mayer [search product chief] has said:

“"What's really happening in Twitter is that there are a lot of clues in it in terms of what's happening that's interesting overall. It's similar to what we see in Google Trends, where people will often type what they're interested in into the search box, and we can make some predictions off of that. So we are interested in being able to offer, for example, micro-blogging and micro-messaging in our search. Particularly in Blog Search and possibly in Web Search, but we don't have any particular plans to announce.”

So, overall there are many clues now by which we can confirm this news. If you have seen anything better than this or wish to say something on this matter feel free to do so through your comments!
