Google Forums listens to its users

Probably the best way to stay up to date of what's happening in search is (next to following Searchcowboys off course) look at Forums. The forums at Webmasterworld or Seroundtable are worldfamous. Another one off these sources are the Google Forums.

The Google Forums aren't the ultimate source for search marketers, but a usefull resource when it comes to questions regarding Google. The forum-moderators have now taken a look on what the users have had to say and made some changes to the forums.

According to the Google Blog changes include:

  • Improved search results, including posts from current and new forums
  • The ability to designate especially helpful forum members as "Top Contributors"
  • A reputation and ranking system
  • The ability for users, Top Contributors and Googlers to mark questions as answered
  • Easier access to Help Center content
  • Expanded user profiles that highlight your forum activity

The changes aren't that big, but still are a nice extra for the forums. Not all Google products are allready working in the new format but will be in the next couple of months.

As usual other languages have to wait and Google will start with English. However, the Polish are in luck: most of the Polish poducts are already changed.

In a video on its blog Google shows us the new features:
