eWeek is reporting that Google will be adding blogs to their universal search results. Apparently, starting next week, links to blogs will show up next to images, news, books, local maps and video. This is awesome news for anyone that has a blog. Already, I garner quite a bit of search engine traffic from Google.com via search terms and strings. I can’t wait to see if Google adding the Blogs genre to the universal search will help expose this blog and other blogs to even more people.
Universal Search is the fruit of a five-year effort involving hundreds of engineers working to refine the company’s search algorithms and add multimedia content to its search returns to give users richer results.
Blogging is not dead yet!
