What Signals From Twitter Does Google Care About?
by +Miriam Hirschman  | +Search Engine Land  

Very relevant and interesting points about Google and Twitter's deal to access Twitter's Firehose (public tweets and data stream).

Two important points to be taken from this article:

1. Potential metrics Google will use to determine what Tweets will show up in search:

> Trend Strength
> Tweet Strength / Engagement
> User Influence
> Link/Page Strength

2. How will this influence appearance and the search rankings?
- It makes sense right now to combine *real time content in search with Tweets, especially on mobile. Imagine the data that you can use from both Twitter and Google search and apply that to trend analysis? 

*This seems to be already happening on an experimental level. See the link to Barry Schwartz's article below.

Hey Austin/Texas peeps! You have to claim a spot for this event. The whole week of events will be fabulous, but this breakfast is off the hook. I have the whole audience to myself for an extended presentation. I would love to have a ton of friends there to support my first solo.
