Google Begins Indexing Facebook Pages [PC Magazine]
Google has announced that its real-time results search will now be scouring the pages of Facebook. If you're a Facebook user, you already have the option of having your personal page indexed by the world's largest search engine. Now, the status updates that pages you are a fan of post could end up in Google's real-time search results.
Google has attempted to mirror the real-time results search that Twitter has popularized. Users searching on Google for topics that are trending on Twitter will frequently receive a real-time search results box in the middle of their Google results that indicates what people are saying about that topic on Twitter. Now, those results will include Facebook status updates, too, so long as the status update is from a Facebook page.
Status updates to your personal profile aren't yet available to web searchers. Facebook has a deal in the works with Microsoft's Bing search engine to make personal status updates searchable in the near future.
