Google Gives Real-Time Searches New Web Page


Google (GOOG) set up a Web address specifically for its real-time search engine, which indexes and delivers status updates, messages and other public content from social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Google incorporated real-time links into search results in December, with users having to click on the "latest" and "updates" filters to access them, Reuters reported.

Now, Google Realtime, located at, will let users view real-time results without the need for these filters.

The site will also let users filter results for geographic location or images. The site will also have an e-mail alert service to let searchers know when the site finds a specific query term while crawling real-time sources.
