SocialHashtags Come to Google Search Results

Hashtags Come to Google Search Results

Now when you search Google for hashtags, Google will add related Google+ posts to the right of regular search results, as long as they have been shared publicly or directly with you, and provide links to search hashtags on other sites.

The Google+ integration of hashtags is getting a nice updates with Google search. Google+ introduced hashtags on posts back in May, where users can click on the hashtags and get to other related posts on Google+ with the same hashtag.

Google is now gone a step further by allowing those same hashtags to be used when searching in Google. Simply type in “#keyword” for the hashtags you want to search:

Hashtag Emmys Google Search

The search results aren’t just limited to things of been shared on Google+. It also includes things such as Tumblr, some Twitter (as seen on the #Emmys search screenshot) as well as any kind of blog posts, new stories pages that are also utilizing the same hashtag

As for privacy, you can see any Google+ posts that are either public or the been shared with you personally, so you will need to be signed into your Google account if you want to see results that have been shared with you personally that might not be public.

Here’s how Google engineer Zaheed Sabur explained it in a Google+ post:

  • 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.

So far, Google is rolling out the hashtag search was users in both the United States and in Canada, with the results. On both Google.com and Google.ca
