Google Real Time Search is here - well almost!
Google real time search results are here and over the next few days, as well as the Google search results and sponsored adwords links, we will receive up to the minute tweets from Twitter, blogposts and social network updates. Google, by doing this, have given a real slap to Yahoo and Bing, proving Google is miles ahead in technological advancements by offering real-time search results, driven by real time publishing. Real time Adwords can’t be far away either.
At this stage we don’t know how the algorithm will calculate who appears and who doesn’t as it appears to me to be a spammer’s wet dream - simply send tweets every ten seconds and they are guaranteed top position on Google - surely real time search won’t make it as simple as that?
One thing is for sure - it will make Twitter a lot more popular and Twitter names will become as valuable as domain names in years to come, if real time search is a success and particularly if Bing and Yahoo follow suit.
Google have given us a teaser on Youtube:
