GoogleTV is hiring

Google is beefing up its efforts in the TV business, judging from a job posting for a GoogleTV product manager.

The search giant's TV land efforts have been an evolving process, which has included the debut of a prototype earlier this year to search TV programming. And on Wednesday, Google's TV efforts were a topic of discussion on several blogs that pointed to the job posting on Google's site.

According to the posting, Google is looking for someone to help get its search and advertising technologies into products that enhance viewers' TV experience. Google said it is seeking someone to "identify key market trends that are shaping user behavior when watching television."

Google's efforts come at a time when the Internet, video search and television are beginning to converge, and a number of industry players, from Yahoo to America Online, are looking for a slice of the action.

Google hopes to develop products that would tie search and advertising technologies, and be used by viewers when downloading videos or digitally recording the latest programs.

Google TV and iTvRatings.com
Google should look into iTvRatings.com Technology. iTvRatings.com is a TV Ratings site, whereas, members log in and tell them what they have just watched. iTvRatings.com can probably tell Google about peoples watching habbits.
