Slide 3  Google recently announced that Google Search will now allow users to search for Google+ posts including hashtags.  Enter a specific hashtag in the Google Search bar. On the right end side of the screen, a section “#hashtag on Google+” appears.  Note that the hashtags that are pulled by Google are only the ones that were made public or shared with you.  For every post that shows on the right sidebar you can see how many comments and +1 it received.  The links are also working, which means that when one clicks on the post, he is redirected to the Google+ page where the hashtag was used. 1.
