Buzz Search Results on Google

Script Summary: Shows results from Buzz on Google search pages



Version: 1.0.1

Script homepage

A year ago, I created a Greasemonkey user script that displays the most recent 5 tweets for the query that you are searching for at the top of Google search results.

Today I have created one that does the same thing for Google Buzz results:

.

Currently, the Buzz results are restricted to actual Buzz updates -- it excludes updates that are imported from other services sich as Twitter, Google Reader, RSS feeds, etc. This seemed to provide the best experience, but a future version may have options/settings for adjusting this. Buzz results are presented in plain text, limited to the first 140 characters, so they don't take up too much screen space on the Google results page. A "more ?" link appears when the Buzz has additional text or media (links, images, etc.).

The Buzz results are powered by the Buzzzy API. A big thanks to the creators of Buzzzy for there work in creating a search engine and API for Buzz updates!

Note that the user script will not work directly in Chrome, but you can grab the Chrome Extension here.
