In a post titled: Searching for Google Talk on currybet.net, Martin Belam reports on a quick test he ran yesterday when he went looking for links about the new Google Talk service in the web databases at Google and Yahoo. According to Belam’s report, at 5pm yesterday “no links about the new messaging application in the top ten” at Google. However, Yahoo, “had already indexed and ranked the wikipedia article about the new application. In addition Yahoo! pulled in three news stories about the Google Talk launch at the top of the results set.” Martin’s post includes a couple of screen caps of what he saw when he ran his test.
