Google’s real time search integration, announced at Web 2 in October, is rolling out (good coverage from SEL). It’ll be integrated as “Latest results.” I’ll be watching how this effects the traffic referral ecosystem across the web – that’s the key. Will Twitter grow? Will Google start to obviate some refers it’s now sending to Facebook? Or will the opposite occur?
One thought on “Google’s Real Time Rolling Out”
It will probably be more like the old free-for-all link pages.
The more active and popular a query space is, the more live content there will be, the fewer people will see any one “real-time” result.
