Twitter Results on Google and Bing

Most know that Twitter results are now being displayed on Google and Bing. But how quickly do potential results appear? I did a quick test on both Google and Bing. See screen shots below for “watch olympics live online”

As you’ll see in the first screen shot, Google shows two results on my initial search.

On my second query, I first posted my search phrase in a tweet. The results are amazing. Google displayed my tweet in about 60 seconds (that’s fast!!)
Notice the Twitter post highlighted by yellow. Google shows the time in which the tweet was posted. Google also displays Twitter results in its SERPs / organic listings. Also, notice in my second search, Google displays Twitter results in an active news scroller. Google certainly does a better job at displaying Twitter search results than Bing. (see Bing results in last image)

Bing Twitter results: While Bing did display my test tweet I’m not sure if Bind displayed it as quickly as Google. I’ll need to run another test or two.
One of the things I don’t care for in Bing Twitter results is that you need to know enough¬† to go to http://www.bing.com/twitter/ – The method that would seem to make the most for searchers is to just display Twitter results directly in SERPs as Google does. It also appears that Google results from Twitter are a bit more relevant than¬† (I’d like to hear your thoughts on this. Do you care if results show up in SERPs or on a dedicated page?)

Super Bowl 2010 Google News Scroller

I’m sure i’m not the first one to see this, but it’s certainly the first time I’ve seen an active news scroller in Google search results. Just like many checking out to see what’s going on with Super Bowl 2010 I was surprised to see the “Latest results for super bowl 2010” (click link to see for your self) or take a look at the screen shot below.

I’m interested to see how many other search queries I can get this sliding news results window to show up for. One thing is for certain; Google is consistently adding new features to its search platform. If you run and search queries and see this scrolling window show up share your search query with our visitors below.

Enjoy Super Bowl 2010 – (This post sponsored by Community Auto Credit)
