Google +  Pages & SearchThe big news yesterday was that Google announced the launch of Google + Pages.

You can create a page now by going over here. I did not yet create a page because you can only own the page with a single profile and my existing Google Profile is in limbo because the migration tool is not ready yet. When it is, I'll make a couple pages and demand you all add them to your circles.

Here is a video demo explaining what it does:

There is really no point for me to write up a summary of how it all works. Danny Sullivan has two detailed articles on it:

Plus you can read a lot of the other articles via Techmeme. You should also read Scoble's complaints about the program.

On the search front, you can now do direct searches in Google for Google + pages. Here is a video on that:

I do not think the content on those pages are being indexed quickly by Google yet. I am sure it will be soon, but seems kind of slow right now.

Right now, there is not much discussion in the forums of why this matters. It is more about, I need to get my profile asap. Like I said, I'll get my profiles when the migration for my account is complete. Until then, I'll have to wait.

I am sure we will learn over time the importance of search and Google + pages in the near future - so stay tuned.
