Google Instant Tutorial: Search, Evolved!

It’s no secret that Google is synonymous with search. Think about it…how often do people say “let me search for that?" The popular phrase is always “let me go Google that.” Google made two major announcements last week. First, the search and ad giant announced that it was now serving up over one billion searches per week worldwide, which officially makes the site the McDonalds of the Internet (minus the terrible food, of course).

The other big news came in the form of Google Instant, which takes Google up yet another notch above the competition. Displaying results in real-time might not strike you as a big deal, but believe us when we say Google has, yet again, redefined how you use the Internet.

    Searching does have a more fluid feel now..
    Or is that Googling now?

    WTF is up with these adds? I'm almost tempted to say make Toms like a particular image board and add a text verification box when making comments.

    As to the Google thing. I personally like the instant search. Google, more and more, shows that they are about speed and effeciency. Take out the fluff and deliver better, faster results.

    I hope that doesn't happen, it's incredibly annoying. I think the users'll report the ads relatively quickly on any post that isn't incredibly out of date, and then they can be removed. (although I don't know much on your end of that) The text verification box is something that seriously makes people not want to comment.

    I patrol whatever stories I publish, so the comment ad bots are usually at a minimum. Needless to say - we're working on it! :)
