Google upped the relevance factor of its search results today with the launch of a new real-time feature that integrates live updates from blogs, news sites, Twitter, Facebook, and more.
Now, when you enter a search term like Golden Gate Bridge into Google, you’ll not only get results from across the web, you also get the option of checking out a real-time stream of what people are saying about the bridge right that minute in the news and blog posts, or on popular social networking sites like Twitter and FriendFeed. Besides the obvious coolness factor, the new feature makes it possible to get news related to your search term almost the instant it happens instead of waiting hours or days for web sites to get indexed.
This is a pretty awesome way to find out about breaking news or what people are saying about the latest blockbuster film. Imagine hearing about a traffic jam on the bridge right from passengers who Tweet about being stuck in traffic, or getting the skinny on movie reviews as people talk about it on FriendFeed. It’s basically integrating what we like best about Twitter directly into Google.
