Google Real-Time Search Live Now (Video, Links)

Google held a major search product event today and among many incredible new products and features displayed was real-time search. Fresh search results pushed live to the search results page, with a pause button above that section of the page.

Results are coming in from freshly published web pages, Tweets, MySpace updates and shockingly, Facebook public profiles. Check out the demo video below.

Want to see real-time results for any query right now? Go to http://google.com/trends and click on any of the hot topics on that page. Replace the search query in that page’s URL with a new search term and if real time results are available, you’ll be able to see them.

This looks a lot like what Collecta offers with its XMPP API. This option should be baked into Google.com’s main search results pages soon.

The company also says that technologies like personalization and localization will be baked into real-time search in the future.
