Today Topsy Labs, a real-time social search platform, announced the addition of Google+ as a source in its real-time social search index. Topsy features an influence algorithm to display the most pertinent and popular social results. In addition to social posts, Topsy displays shared links with social context within the results. A little over a month ago, we had previously anointed Topsy as the biggest winner in the Google real-time search fallout. Now it’s getting more powerful with the addition of Google+ data.
