Google Finally Copies Microsoft, Adds ‘Related Searches’ to Google News

In Microsoft’s big pursuit of Google, they often seem to update their search products to include features Google has already mastered. This time, the tables are turned and Google is following in Microsoft’s footsteps.

Google News has announced the addition of ‘Related Searches‘ to its news feature. When Live Search launched recently, ‘Related Search’ was a built-in feature.

And in more shocking news – Live Search does it better, in my humble opinion. Related searches are placed on a right sidebar above the fold, ready to be of assistance. Google places its related searches after the last result on a page.
