Real-time search is all the rage lately, with Twitter fueling the movement via its search of user feeds. Of course, this all really started with universal search and the addition of news results to timely keywords.
Social search engine Scour is getting into the real-time search game with a rather nice approach. Instead of revamping their site or having a separate little section for news-y results, they're simply notifying users of a real-time result with an icon containing an exclamation mark. Otherwise, the results just hang out with the "regular" results.
Check out this search for Tiger Woods. You get the Wikipedia page, his official site, and his PGA tour profile. Then you see the first "real-time" result, a press release on the PGA site for July 14, 2009.
A few links down you see a result for one of many articles talking about how Woods is favored to win this week's British Open.
Despite the pleasantness of the integration, it would be nice to see Twitter results. Perhaps a widget on the sidebar or something.
What do you think of Scour's real-time results? Let us know in the comments.
