Google is testing a new feature called ‘Google Posts’

According to reports, tech giant Google is testing a new feature which will give well-known individuals, businesses, and organizations a prominent place on the Google Search results. The new feature will likely be called ‘Google Posts,’ but Google has not yet confirmed the name officially.

The ‘Google Posts’ feature will essentially enable some leading small and medium businesses (SMBs), organizations and famous individuals – celebrities and politicians – to post self-promoting information as well as ads on Google’s search results. The information posted by these individuals and businesses will be displayed on a design which will be fairly akin to Google’s “mobile cards.”

The new ‘Google Posts’ feature which is being tested by Google is apparently an extension of the ‘Google Podium’ beta, which was launched by the company in February. That beta was commenced by Google with the collaboration of the US presidential candidates.

About Google’s testing of the seemingly free-of-charge ‘Google Posts’ feature, analysts have said that the company is evidently interested in giving its social presence a notable boost; and, to achieve that, it has turned to high-profile individuals and businesses.

Meanwhile, in reference to the ‘Google Posts’ feature, a Google representative told Modern Readers on Sunday: “This is an experimental search feature we are testing, but it is not tied to Google+. We are currently experimenting with presidential candidates and just started with some SMBs for a select pilot period.”
