The JM Internet Group, a leader in providing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) courses online, has posted detailed commentary on the new Google Buzz social media platform. Google Buzz allows Gmail users to post and receive updates as well as follow other Gmailers automatically. The SEO implications range from Google’s real-time indexing of Buzz posts to possible priority of Buzz posts in Google search results.
"Google Buzz was announced to great fanfare," said Jason McDonald, SEO Director of the JM Internet Group. "While it isn’t directly an SEO tool, the fact that it is sponsored by Google and Google promises to index public Buzz posts in the Google search engine, means that smart SEO practitioners should keep their eye on Google Buzz." Twitter is the leader in microblogging, and both Google and Bing have begun to index Twitter posts in what is called ‘real-time search.’ Buzz posts will no doubt follow.
