Google Instant #2….the announcement!
Yesterday Google unveiled Google Instant. Lots of figures and statistics were thrown around such as it takes 9 seconds to type in a search query and another 15 seconds to choose which result to open. Google Instant aims to put a rocket under those figures by serving up results as you type.
Google’s Head of Search Marissa Mayer said “With Google Instant, we estimate that we’ll save our users 11 hours with each passing second!”. Apparently that’s 3.5 billion seconds a day and 350 million hours a year!
There is a great round up of the search event I found by by Digits, who live-blogged the event.
