Google Adds MySpace To Real-Time Results & Images Site Command Updates

Google confirmed two different discussions taking place in the webmaster and SEO community over the past few days.

The first is that MySpace results are now included in Google’s Real Time search results feature. In addition, Google launched real-time search in Russian and Japanese.

The second is that Google has updated their site command for Google Image searches. Now, if you search for images on a site, using site:domain.com, Google will show you the images on the web pages on that domain, and ignore the host of that image. Here is how Google explained it:

Based on feedback from users and webmasters, we have improved the [site:] operator for Google Images. In the past, the [site:] operator filtered based on the image URL, not based on the URL of web pages linking to the images. Now, the operator will run your search over web sites that include images, no matter where the images themselves are hosted, which removes a lot of noise from your results and gives you more control over what you’re searching for.

Example searches: [site:digg.com space shuttle], [site:morbidanatomy.blogspot.com], [site:flickr.com/photos/polvero]

The thing is, it makes it harder for those trying to figure out if their images are being ripped off by competitors.
