Google search got a real-time upgrade and started to integrate Tweets from Twitter in real-time into search results. So its makes sense for Google's Search Appliance (GSA) to now include tweets from Twitter next within enterprise's internal Search Appliance results. Google offers businesses its GSA product, a yellow box that resembles a slice of Swiss cheese, that can index any enterprise data generated by Oracle databases, SAP systems, Documentum, SharePoint, Salesforce.com, HR systems, intranets, wikis, and more, and...

Google isn't content being the most popular Internet search engine -- it continuously tinkers to create a more immersive user experience. Sometimes it fails as PC World outlined in this article . And Google's SearchWiki, a user-edited search results feature unveiled yesterday , in my opinion is Google's latest bad idea since, well, since Lively . SearchWiki allows you to edit and customize your search results pages. You must be signed into your Google account for it to work.

It's called, fittingly enough, Google...

European antitrust officials announced Monday that they have found four areas of concern in an investigation into Google's search practices, saying the search giant has "a matter of weeks" to volunteer remedies. The findings mean that the clock effectively has started ticking for Google to come up with solutions to the regulators' concerns — or face formal charges that could result in a hefty fine or restrictions on Google's behavior. Pressure is rising on the dominant search engine as...

One of my favorite Google tricks is site-specific searching. In other words, you run a Google search just like you usually would, but limit the scope to one site. Suppose, for instance, that you're trying to find an old post of mine--say, the one about using Gmail to filter spam . One option is to head to PC World, type in a few keywords, then wade through the results in hopes of finding the post. Or, you could save several steps and type this into your Google search bar: Try it. You'll...
