Google Timeline results graduates from Labs

Web 2.0, Websites

google-timeline-results.jpgTowards the start of last year, Google experimented with different ways to view search results in its experimental section. They were evidently happy enough with one of them – Timeline – that it’s now appearing in some queries in the main results. Timeline allows you to browse results by when they were posted, or when they ocurred.

The picture above is for a search for “book of revelation”, though that search no longer displays the timeline. Perhaps Google is still tweaking it a little. I hope it stays, I rather like it, but it does beg the question – what’s next? Search by smell?
