Today is all about App Indexing day where we will only cover topics on Google App Indexing. Why? Because we launched our Search Engine Roundtable app for iOS (free download) and Android (free download) - please download it.

Earlier this month, Google announced that the mobile search results done in Google on your iOS device in Safari will begin showing app content to iOS users. Google is now telling me that iOS app content in mobile Safari is now live for apps you have installed on your device.

In the Google+ Hangout on App Indexing, with Google's Mariya Moeva and friends, Mariya said it is currently live.

The question was asked at the 27:59 mark by myself, where I asked, "you said at the end of this month iOS apps would start showing in the search results for apps, is that happening now?"

Mariya Moeva responded saying "Yep."

She went on to explain that this is only for apps you've installed, so it might not come up that often. If you happen to have a lot of iOS apps that have implemented Google App Indexing and you've read through a lot of that content in the app, Google should surface that content in mobile Safari for you, for relevant queries. So make sure to download our app so you can see it for yourself.

Again, app indexed results are now showing up in mobile Safari in Google's search results.

Here is the video embed at the start time:
