Google announced on the Official Google Search blog today that it would incorporate upcoming concert listings in search results. When previously searching for a band or artist, you would usually get its official website with songs and snippets that Google introduced in August of last year. After today’s update, Google will now display concert listings from various sources underneath the result for the band or artist’s official website. The new listing also includes links to various ticket dealers and a link to “Show more events.” Site administrators can add rich snippets markup to their web pages and follow instructions to mark up events. The feature is now only available to English-speaking users searching through Google.com.
