Google 'timeline Results'
Posted 02 July 2009 - 08:17 AM
I've uploaded part of a screenshot as an example.
It seems that 'history' could be the trigger word for timeline results?

I see... So it's not new, then? Oh dear!
Strange, because I use the word 'history' in a few searches that could have produced a timeline but didn't - I just assumed it was a new feature.

It's addition to the Universal Search stuff is fairly recent. Has to be since Universal Search itself didn't even start to get rolled out until 2007, and mostly then it was integrating book searches and Froogle/Google Shopping results into the normal searches. I honestly don't remember the first time I saw a timeline show up. But it's not been years ago or anything like that.
FWIW, I'm not sure "history" alone will trigger it. The rest of the words in the phrase would probably have to be relevant to a timeline they've already created.

I'm not sure it's quite that simple. For example, a search for [kings and queens of england] triggers timeline results. And "timeline" is a good word to throw into a search to force a timeline if one is available, e.g. [constituencies timeline].

Curious though that I'm seeing this relatively recent forum discussion on this, as timeline results have been appearing in the SERPs since the beginning of 2009. Perhaps another tweak to improve temporal relevancy in Google.
