Super Bowl Highlights Will Show In Google’s Search Results


Google’s football-related search results are moving even further beyond the old “10 blue links” interface, with video content from the NFL and its official cable channel, the NFL Network. This weekend, Google’s search results will feature in-game highlights from Super Bowl 49 between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.


The NFL and Google have announced an agreement to show NFL game highlights right in Google’s search results on the desktop, tablets and mobile phones. Here’s how the NFL is describing the way this content will look:



A simple Google search will display official NFL video along with related news and information all delivered to the user in one distinct box at the top of the search results. Kickoff time and broadcast information for every NFL game will also be prominently displayed in Google Search.



You can see this in action today. A search for “super bowl” brings up the typical Google onebox display with game information, and now includes the NFL’s official 4-minute-plus game preview video.

Clicking the video icon generates a popup screen where the video plays over the search results page. It’s not clear what specific queries will produce videos, but you can assume it’ll be just about anything Super Bowl-related this weekend — and then a lot more queries when next season begins this summer.


Google will, of course, make money via the search ads that appear with NFL-related queries and the new video content. Re/Code reports that Google and the NFL will share those ad dollars.


NFL video content, including game highlights, will also be featured on the just launched, official NFL YouTube channel.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
