Google Search Results with Discussion and Forum Data

Google now features metadata crawled from forums and discussion sites in its search results. These include the number of posts from the target page, the number of authors, and the date of last post.

Here’s a sample result I get when searching for Windows Vista Problems:



It’s a neat new feature that helps you figure out if a result comes from a forum and if it has a reasonable amount of replies to help you solve your problem. So if you’re searching for iphone unlocking tips or C++ multimap performance, expect a little more help from good ol’ Google!
