Another Mystery in the SERPs - The New Zealand Bookstore

This query and set of search results surprised me quite a bit, particularly since I'm performing the search from a US IP address, and a small, regional bookshop in New Zealand is outranking everyone: https://www.google.com/search?q=hard+to+find+books

Any guesses as to why they're ranking so well in the US results?

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

If you have questions then also be sure to check out our Help Center content http://goo.gl/zyIVMH; if you still can’t find an answer then please post your question in the Collections subcategory. 

Best,
Moritz & Claire

Danny Sullivan joined me for a live broadcast event via a Hangout on Air (HOA), and he clarified what he learned about Hummingbird. This was in fact a rewrite of the search engine itself. This included many changes.  For example, it appears that prior to Hummingbird that Google had major technical limitations impacting the use of social signals as a ranking factor, and the release of Hummingbird has now removed those limitations. It will now be feasible for Google to start using them in a meaningful way in the future.
