I think Google have got their priorities wrong with Real Time search, though I haven’t seen this on other “ego search” terms. I checked with Danny Sullivan and Michael Arrington to start with.
As I have mentioned before, I could understand and even encourage Google to somehow decide to pull in my most recent blog posts as part of their real time search. Most people searching for me it is most likely a regular reader doing a navigational query looking for my latest blog posts, not my latest tweets.
I see this with both a UK and US search, personalization switched off in the query, and logged out
This is an “Anytime” search – no need to select “latest”
Update – Chris Brogan Too
I wonder where Chris would prefer the traffic to go, blog or Twitter?
I can’t track search traffic to Twitter
