Google shows off Google+ content recommendations for mobile sites on Android & iOS

Google today is showing off a new way for content creators online to provide content recommendations to readers viewing their site through mobile devices.

The new content recommendations feature is not so surprisingly powered by Google+ and will allow users to access related content for the page they are currently visiting through a small notification that appears as they browse. To access the recommendations, users can enable the feature on Android devices running 2.3.3 and above and also on iOS devices running Chrome or Safari on iOS 5 or later. Site owners can implement the feature by dropping in a single line of code.

Google explained how it creates the recommendations based on Google+ activity and also showed the new feature in action in the video above posted to its Developers YouTube channel:

Recommendations consider Search Authorship, Google+ activity (including +1′s and shares), and content on the visitors’ current page to keep the quality high. In all cases, recommended content is based on the visitors’ current page to keep the quality high. And they only appear when people tap for more, so as not to interrupt their browsing experience.
