Google: In Real Time... Give It a Go!

In Real Time... Give It a Go!

Want real-time content from across the web?  Give Google's latest feature Realtime a Go!  Google first rolled out its real-time search feature in December 2009 as an "Updates" option on the sidebar in the main Google search. As of August 26, 2010, Realtime now has its own page plus some new enhancements: Geographic Search, Conversation View, and Google Alerts.

This week, I started trying out Google's real-time search tool for the first time. Google Realtime search brings the most current information to its users within seconds, an improvement from traditional search indexing methods. In a matter of seconds, I had access to relevant news, blog posts, comments and updates - across real-time sites like Twitter, FriendFeed, and Facebook. Great for up-to-the-second information on hot topics!

Check out this video on How to use Realtime Search!

Now give it a go and let me know what you think!

Letitia, Thanks for the great info about Google!  How exciting!  I love being able to "replay" to see what people were saying about a subject in the past.  Being able to search a specific geographical area is so neat!

I'm so glad I read your blog today ;)  This is great stuff!

Had not heard of this before, Letitia. It's amazing the improvements Google has made over the last year!
