Google 'officially' launches real time search

Mon 7 December 2009 22:57, Bas van den Beld

People have been talking about real time search for over a year now. Supposedly Twitter was the real time search engine. But Google started indexing faster and faster and today announces "Real Time Search".

Today Google shared some new innovations which are focussed on social, mobile and real time. In the next few days Google will roll out the new feature over their search engines. For now you might be able to see it, if you're lucky. If not, try this link which might force it for you.

Google 'officially' launches real time search

So how does it work? If you search for a topic which is 'part of the real time process" midway down the page there is a 'latest results' section with real time results. These results 'flow' so get updated all the time. You can use a "pause-button" to stop the flow and look at the results. You can then click on the latest result and look at all the other results.

The real time results consist of:

  • Tweets from Twitter
  • Content from Google News
  • Content from Google Blog Search
  • Newly created web pages
  • Freshly updated web pages
  • FriendFeed update
  • Jaiku updates
  • Identi.ca updates
  • TwitArmy updates

It really looks great and is a next step in search. Google does it again. More information later. See below the video Google launched.

  • This is a bold, timely move that is going to lead to a massive shake up in the entire search industry. Besides TipTop (http://feeltiptop.com) which offers a unique experience that Google would not be able to
    replicate easily (unless they acquire them), I do not quite see how any other real-time search engine is going to survive.
