This is pretty monumental. The only things you were able to do as an avid user of the Google homepage is to search, but now you can directly share content on Google+ from the start page. Perhaps Google was looking for an easy boost in traffic and usage? It’s not very intrusive, but it is very apparent in its little top right corner. It was eventually coming, but now that it’s here we shall see if users retaliate or embrace it. It also appears in many of the other Google products (an exception is YouTube), but it also is not very intelligent — it does not pick up the URL of the you’re on; say for example you want to share Google News or a location, you would still need to copy/paste the link, manually.
Oh, and it’s on the search results pages, too. Unexpected, right? Via: MarketingLand
