Today is the day!!! Both excited and nervous. How many millions will be watching and what percentage of them might vote at the same instant? Just do the math. Forget about the complexity of Google search, if you've ever built or maintained any web service you'll know why that kind of spike makes me nervous. Wish me luck, please!
 
Calling all #AmericanIdol fans! Starting today, you can vote for your favorite finalist singers directly from #GoogleSearch. From your phone, tablet or computer, simply search for [american idol] or [idol] during the show’s voting hours. You’ll see a screen where you can chime in and vote for your favorite contestant.

You probably already love KitKat, who doesn't? Well, now you'll hopefully have a whole new reason to fall in love with KitKat all over again. :-)

Where I come from, fast and readily accessible Internet has always been a dream. And so I can appreciate it all the more. Internet changed the lives of so many of us and for so much better. It's a door to limitless opportunities and everyone on this planet deserves fast access to it.

Guess who is trying to make that happen? Yes, Google! It's not happening tomorrow but it makes me so proud that at least we're trying.

A richer hashtag experience in Google Search

The #hashtags you see in Google+ posts are a useful way to discover conversations around a particular topic. In May we added related hashtags to the Google+ stream, turning any post into an opportunity to go deeper and explore what’s interesting to you.

Today we’re bringing a richer hashtag experience to Google Search. Here’s how it works:

- When you search on Google for a hashtag, say [#AmericasCup] or [#WaterfallWednesday], a set of relevant Google+ posts may appear to the right of regular results.
- You’ll only be able to see posts that have been shared publicly or shared with you.
- If you click on any of these posts you'll go to Google+, where you'll see the full set of relevant posts.
- You'll also see links to search for these hashtags on other social sites.

Today's update will be available (initially) to English language users in the US and Canada on google.com and google.ca. It’ll be live within the next few hours, so give it a go and let us know what you think.

I have a question for y'all. At what point does a hashtag feature in Google+/YouTube comments then become worthy of the Right-Hand appearance in search?! I searched for a Hashtag that I knew to be used in Google+ that was sharted publicly but it didn't appear on the right-hand side when I searched it... So there must be a parameter that I can't see that warrants the worthiness of the hashtag to tie in Google+ conversations.

Anyone? Thanks

There'll always be features you hadn't thought of. There'll always be bugs you couldn't catch. There's really no such thing as a perfect or feature-complete product. It's all about getting a working product out quickly with the absolute necessities, and iterating fast until it's successful.
