Bing's immense marketing push may have many worried for Google's future. But Google's got it covered.
The new Real-Time Search feature introduced early this morning in most USA markets and being pushed out abroad gives you a whole new view on search.
Instead of searching for a term and getting static results, you're now presented with a small box with a live feed of happenings - including new site postings, Twitter updates, and press releases.
The live feed provides an interesting view on the web, I wasted 5 minutes just watching the feed for Tiger Woods (as you can see) because of some of the hilarious Twitter comments coming by.
In addition to simply providing a live view, this also provides interesting opportunities for those looking to become a big hit on the web - you could be featured on this live feed. If your comment is captivating - you could get some click-through to your site.
All-in-all, I think this feature shows why Google will remain a technological superpower in today's computing world - they won't be rendered irrelevant. Their agility in quickly answering Bing with this powerful new feature is testament to that.
