Google to include people's Gmail in search results
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Google's Internet search engine is getting more personal by highlighting information drawn from its users' Gmail accounts on its main results page.
The feature announced Wednesday marks Google's latest attempt to deliver data that people are seeking more quickly as it tries to maintain the dominance of the Internet search engine, the business that generates most of the company's revenue.
Gmail's more than 425 million users already can search within their personal e-mail accounts to find something they need, such as an order from Amazon.com or an airline reservation.
Now, Gmail users who are logged into their accounts will be shown a list of relevant e-mails on Google's main search results page if the correspondence is contains a word entered in a search request.
Google Inc. is initially testing the feature with just 1 million Gmail users.
