Google Indexing URLs With Emoji Characters

Just when you thought the death of emojis in Google has started, it continued to live on but it even got stronger.

Cyrus Shepard posted on Google+ an example of him being able to get an Emoji based URL indexed and ranked within the Google search results in "less than 30 minutes," he said.

You can see it by searching for [http://xn--f7iaaaa.ws/xn--f7iaaaa/] here is the snippet:

Google Emoji URL indexed

A site command shows nothing but that can be because site commands are a bit slower.

So when is Google really going to kill of Emojis in the search results? I am not sure but they do have it on their to do list.
