Google Integrates MySpace to Search, But Not Proud of it

Google seemed to have quietly implemented MySpace Real-Time Search API just now. The announcement was actually made by MySpace so I checked out the Official Google Blog if there was any update about this but didn’t find any.  Probably because it’s too early or maybe Google just don’t want to make a big fuzz about this?

Anyway, the MySpace folks are pretty much excited about it nonetheless. In fact, they claim that the integration  is the first real-time integration of social networking platform to Google Search. Well perhaps they don’t consider Twitter as a social networking site so they might have missed the fact that Google has also integrated Twitter streams to search recently.

If you’re curious about it, you might want to try searching and find out if you will be getting live updates from MySpace users such as news, photos, and blog posts as part of the Google search results. MySpace streams will be displayed only if they were made public by MySpace members. MySpace contents that will be displayed as search results will be ranked based on the latest and of the highest relevancy to the subject of your searces.
