Google Begins “Real-Time” Suggestions To Google News

Posted by madhavkobal on 06/09/2009

Aiming to eliminate the cumbersome process of typing for its users, search engine titan Google has recently added its predictive Google Suggest feature to Google News. “We are delighted to announce that we have enabled Suggest in all of our Google News editions in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish versions,” Google said in a blog post.

Now when you go to search for something on Google News, and as you begin to type in a query, Google will attempt to work out what you are searching for and offers relevant suggestions in a drop-down menu. The feature has been available on Google.com since August 2008.

“The feature can make your experience searching Google News better by helping you formulate queries, saving you keystrokes, correcting spelling mistakes and exposing you to queries you might not have thought of,” says Google.

As shown in the image below the query for Pontiac g6 vehicle and its relevant suggestions in the drop down menu…

According to Google, “The goal of all that? To get you to the articles you are looking for as quickly as possible.” The company is also working to enable Suggest in other editions of Google News.

Google introduced Google Suggest to Google.com last year. Earlier this year in was made worldwide. And after a short period, Google even began placing ads within the suggestions. This was one feature introduced a few months ago along with some navigational suggestions, personalized suggestions, and suggestions on results pages.

So far, it is not known as to how many of these features will be active in the Google News version of Google Suggest, but it is interesting that Google calls these suggestions as being “real time.”
