real-time searchRefers to queries made to search engines that index news sites, blogs, Twitter feeds and other sources of data that are being updated continuously. General-purpose search engines increasingly add more real-time results for users; however, search engines, such as www.OneRiot.com, www.Collecta.com and www.Topsy.com, focus exclusively on the latest postings.
