Google Drops Realtime Search Temporarily

. July 5, 2011 . 0 Comments

Google has announced that it has temporarily disabled its Realtime search feature.

“We’ve temporarily disabled google.com/realtime. We’re exploring how to incorporate Google+ into this functionality, so stay tuned,”

“Since October of 2009, we have had an agreement with Twitter to include their updates in our search results through a special feed, and that agreement expired on July 2,” a Google representative told SearchEngineLand. “While we will not have access to this special feed from Twitter, information on Twitter that’s publicly available to our crawlers will still be searchable and discoverable on Google.”

When Realtime returns, it will feature content from a variety of sources, not just Google+, the company’s recently unveiled social network, Google told SearchEngineLand.
