TECHNOLOGY TIPS - HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT GOOGLE POSTS?

Google is at it again with a new product called Google Posts. These posts show up now in your searches on Google and currently come directly from people with special access. Right now this is still in beta. The businesses you see online were approached by Google to assist in the testing.

On the website they are calling this "an experimental new podium on Google. Hear directly from the US presidential candidates in real time on Google." They have not yet given a name but are also being called "business cards" by Search Engine Land. The cards are similar to a Twitter post with a very long text limit of 14,400 characters and up to 10 images or videos per post. This is also the first time that animation/GIFs have landed on the search results page. The information in the results represents all custom content.

Use is limited to verified individuals and organizations. Similar to Google Plus, you can create content that instantly appears in search results. Also similar to Google Plus, your posts can be shared on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter. There is an invite-only waitlist should you wish to join. There is still a considerable amount unknown about this new feature and it could potentially be a replacement for Google Plus.
