London, UK (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
The development team at social media management providers CrowdControlHQ has released the first search tool for leading social network Google+.
The search tool, known as searchgpl.us, allows any user to search a particular topic or comment. Once searched, the tool produces a snapshot of the current public comments and posts across Google+, whether through a post within the network or from an article or webpage that a Google+ user +1’d. The search results can also be split by gender to provide users an understanding of which posts are proving most popular to either males or females.
The search tool is the first of its kind for Google+. The creation of this tool also follows on from the announcement that CrowdControlHQ is to incorporate Google+ into its buzz-monitoring feature. This feature allows a user to research current trends and reactions to particular topics across the leading social networks and news sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google News. As with the release of searchgpl.us, the incorporation of this feature is the first of its kind for any social network.
The release of Searchgpl.us comes at a good time, especially given Google+ has recently moved out of closed beta, bringing in a host of new users to the network. This, in turn, has helped to increase the user base and offers those using the search tool an increased level of post data and information to search through.
James Leavesley, co-founder of CrowdControlHQ, said: “We believe the release of this search tool will be pivotal in allowing brands an insight into the user base across Google+. With user numbers growing on a daily basis since the network moved into open beta, an understanding of Google+ users and what they look to engage with is imperative for any marketer waiting in preparation for the release of Google+ brand pages.”
