Yesterday 7th December, Google released it’s real time search results. As Google says in the announcement on their blog
“Now, immediately after conducting a search, you can see live updates from people on popular sites like Twitter and FriendFeed, as well as headlines from news and blog posts published just seconds before. When they are relevant, we’ll rank these latest results to show the freshest information right on the search results page.”
To see the results in action go to the Google Trends website and click on one of the Hot Topics. You will see for any of the results in the list that when you click through to the Google search results page that a section of the page contains real time search results from the billions of pages Google are indexing from Twitter, Facebook and other locations. I’ve created this 30 second video below to show how it looks.
