With “Search Plus Your World” turning its search engine into a wonderland for its social product, Google+, the company is now taking advantage of the fact that you may in fact Google yourself too.
R&D ego search today, I found that Google is now asking me to complete my profile on Google+:
I was pretty surprised that the request from Google took up so much real-estate in the search results, but I suppose that the company is trying everything to get people to come back and continue to use the product. As you might remember, the company announced that Google+ has 90 million global users, with 60% active engagement. This would appear to be a tactic to increase those engagement numbers.
Along with Google adding “Ask on Google+” links to the bottom of all of its search results, it looks like every facet of its social network will begin creeping up into search, which is of course its biggest product.
