Google Realtime Search Gets New Name, Its Own URL, And Kick In The Pants

by Alexia Tsotsis on Aug 26, 2010

In a move that emphasizes the increasing importance of realtime search, Google has just given their realtime search function a kick in the pants, moving it from the lowly “Updates” sidebar on regular Google search to it’s own URL http://google.com/realtime, which was broken this morning but now seems to be redirecting to http://www.google.com/realtime?esrch=RealtimeLaunch::Experiment.
