Google has launched Google Instant

14 September 2010

Google’s new Google Instant displays and updates results in real time as users type in queries, shaving an estimated 2-5 seconds off the average 9 seconds taken to carry out a search

Available in the US and UK now and key European markets shortly with other territories and mobile to follow in 2011, Instant will help Google to differentiate its search engine in an increasingly competitive market

Google Instant should stabilise, if not boost, the company’s share of queries, which has fallen both in the US and globally since February, and may also enhance the value of ads on Google
