How Does Google’s Real-Time Search Work?
Google’s real-time search provides users with a page of search results that automatically update as new updates are created that mention the user's search terms from social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and more. Included in real-time search are many new features:
Real-Time Google Alerts - Do you want to get an email the second someone mentions your business on Twitter? Now you can. With the launch of real-time search, Google has made Google Alerts a real-time feature.
Look for Local Conversations - Using real-time search, users can limit real-time updates to a specific location near them or a location they select. Want to know what is the hottest topic in your city right now? Then set your location in Google real-time search.
History Conversation Viewing - Using the timeline at the top of the real-time page, users can scroll to a period of time and look at the updates and conversations for specific data and times using Google’s real-time search .
