Google Realtime Search Engine Laucnhes

Filled under:

Dylan Casey, a product manager at Google, wrote on the company’s blog: “On the new homepage you’ll find some great tools to help you refine and understand your results. First, you can use geographic refinements to find updates and news near you, or in a region you specify. So if you’re travelling to Los Angeles this summer, you can check out tweets from Angelenos to get ideas for activities happening right where you are.

The new capabilities include the ability to refine real-time search results by geography, which can be accomplished both through the selection options menu in the left-hand search pane and via the place links included with some real-time search results.

In addition, we’ve added a conversations view, making it easy to follow a discussion on the real-time web. Often a single tweet sparks a larger conversation of re-tweets and other replies, but to put it together you have to click through a bunch of links and figure it out yourself. With the new “full conversation” feature, you can browse the entire conversation in a single glance. We organize the tweets from oldest to newest and indent so you quickly see how the conversation developed.- blog
