I was pleasantly surprised to see Tweets in Google search results the other day.

Now, I know I might not be entirely on the ball with this ‘news’ but I’m excited about it.

If you search for a company or person name that is the same as a Twitter account (case sensitivity seems to matter from time to time) you’re likely to see Twitter results on your Google Search Results page too. (see below)

If anything, this is a good reason to get your brand out there on twitter and make good use of it. Not only can people search for you/your company name but they can see what you’re saying and what is being said about you when they do search.

For example – a simple search for Chris Brogan returned the expected search results and some handy Tweets too:
