Searching Geocaching In Real-Time

You may have heard Google's announcement earlier this week that they've included real-time search capabilities in their search engine. So now when you do a Google search, you can retrieve a dynamic stream of real-time content from across the web, including results from Twitter, FriendFeed, as well as headlines from news and blog posts published just seconds before.

Of course, I had to test this out by doing a search of "geocaching", and sure enough, it was like getting a live feed of all the latest geocaching content from across the interwebz. To invoke this option, just select "Latest" under the search options in the left hand column:

Now I'm not saying that geocaching isn't popular, but if you want to see the real power of this feature, try searching for something like "Obama", or "Tiger Woods", for example. But still, it's nice to know that now you can stay up to date with all the latest geocaching gossip in real-time with a simple search.

Cache On!
