If you are aware of Google Realtime results and use it, you probably know about it and how it's done, to get your tweets listed in Google Realtime. However, for the ones who don't use the Google Realtime results and are not aware of this fact, here's how.

When you perform a search on Google, a menu appears on the left side of the Google search menu. On the menu are links like Everything, Images, Videos, News, Shopping, and so on. These are various universal search options, for example, you can search only for blogs, images or videos depending on which link you click in that menu. There is also one link called Realtime, it may appear as updates in some areas.

Selecting the Realtime link, after you perform a search, lists you the latest news and information on the Internet which are usually from sources like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Friendfeed, Jaiku etc. This means, using the Realtime link, even people who have no Twitter account can see your links, news, offers etc., tweeted by you. With Google Realtime, all tweeters can get their tweets in the search engines. It is an easy way to get included in the search engines and almost instantly, regardless of a Twitter account's age. An account a year or a minute old have no differences for search engines.

You just have to follow a few steps to ensure your tweet is included in Google Realtime results.

  • Register/Sign up at Twitter or log in, if you are an existing user.
  • Register/Sign up at Digg or log in, if you are an existing user.
  • Now link your Twitter and Digg accounts via Digg.
  • Post a link on Digg (try avoiding spam).
  • Then elect (via Digg again) to post it to your Twitter account as well.

The first post might take some time before it appears in the Google Realtime results, but in future, they will appear almost immediately. For your posts to appear on their own, post quality content regularly and work on getting a good Twitter following with retweets and mentions.
